This fly was found dead 8 September indoors in N Scotland (Cromarty, NH76). I key it out as Piezura pardalina. Can anyone confirm, please? And does anyone know the status of this in Scotland? I have not been able to trace any records.

A shot of the wing follows.

This has been confirmed as P. pardalina, and the specimen is in NMS in Edinburgh. Second Scottish record, and farther north by a long way from the first.

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
