I found this spectacular antennaed Tachinid in the outskirts of Madrid yesterday April the 14th 2013, chalk-land area by a lagoon. It was sitting on a rock, but it was there only for two seconds and moved to another spot on the same rock. It was like this for half an hour. A nightmare to photograph, but that was part of the fun Grin

I think it might be a Wagneriini: very long subapical scutellar bristles, erect bristles on the scutellum, very bristly face, typical petiole,... But I cannot find anything that fits Sad Sad Perhaps a Wagneria?? But it doesn't look like the Wagneria I usually see. I am totally confused.

Help, pleaaaase!! Shock Thanks!! Wink

Very interesting ... I agree with your assessment but it doesn't remind me of anything either ... lovely photos though so maybe someone else will know Smile

Thanks for your input, Chris!! Smile At least you didn't have to tell me that it doesn't look at all like a Wagneriini Wink Grin Very happy to know that you agree TumbsUp

The enormous third antennal segment strongly suggests Periscepsia handlirschi, I'm pretty sure that is what it is. This species occurs inland in Spain, so that agrees with Madrid as well.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
