I found this medium sized (9-10 mm) tabanid in the south of poland during my holiday this year.
I wonder whether it is the most common species of the genus Silvius, S. alpinus?

Hi Gerard,

If this were a TV-show, you would have a shot for the main price now.
In other words, you are quite right.

Thanks Theo,
Always a pleasure when something is confirmed to be just that what I identified myself after hard work! GrinGrin
