This Tachinid was caught on 15.VII.2005 on the Dutch Waddensea Island of Griend. Bodylength 7 mm.
I get hopelessly stuck in Tschorsnig & Herting. Who can give me a clue?

I think it is Miltogramminae of the family Sarcophagidae.

Thanks Paul,

I was confused because of the bare arista, but Miltogramma it seems to be! With the help of Pape (1987) I named it M. punctatum. Not quite happy with all the characteristics, but the rest was no option.

Hi Date,

Paul is right, it is a Miltogramminae.
There are many more genera in this subfamily than the genus Miltogramma, but this one is a Miltogramma (though difficult to explain based on this picture). Anyway, it is Miltogramma germari, the dutch coastal dune species. As could be expected from Griend,

Thanks for the identification. Hereby I can add it as a new species for the island. There are a few solitary bee-species overthere, so maybe we'll see Miltogramma again next year.
I will check mij fly-collection of Rottumerplaat. Maybe it contains are a few Miltogramma as well.

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
