Looks like Thelaira sp. (Tachinidae) - large eyes, long legs. As for the species ... I'm not willing to commit Wink

I quite agree.

Given the location, Ruurlo, I have no doubt that it is Thelaira nigripes.
But I do agree that is cheating.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
