I saw this large fly this morning in Holland, Amstelveen. I see them evry year, mostly during the summer, but April has been exceptionally hot in the Netherlands this year (beating the 300 year record by 2 degrees, quite stunning), with temperatures above 25 Celcis for a number of days.

It is a BIG fly. Before I knew they are less interested in me then I am in them, I was quite scared. Something between 15 and 20 mm, but the heavy built makes them much larges visually.

I saw this guy (is it a he? why?) in a Hawthorn bordering the local footbal field, but it is actually quite close to meadows withs cows (say 500 meter or so).

I arriev at Tabanus, but which one? I add some close up of the eyes, since I understood there are relevant for a proper ID.

Congratulations.
New Dutch record: Male Tabanus autumnalis, very early indeed (never before may 15th).
But then again, with this weather...

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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