Berlin - July - at a window

I have no experience with Asilidae but they are super cool insects. very fascinating!

I am hoping for a genus and is this a female?

Thank you for your time. Smile

I am a bit tired today. The original subject was "Family and genus?"
I know it is Asilidae. I'm goofy today. sorry.

Thank you very much Sir Reinoud. I didn't expect a species level id. I appreciate you very much.

I started researching this species and I see that it is a male. Robberflies are so very fascinating and also very large compared to other diptera Smile

They can also be very tiny and cute: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=39810
Or, indeed, large and scary, whooooha:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZijPsDgISh0

They have sort of character :-)

wow! that is very cute. looks fluffy. good for dusting the house Smile
https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=39810

I agree that the large ones can be intimidating when first encountered. I just started photographing diptera in 2014, id est, I never paid attention to them before. I also didn't know anything about cameras and photography. Plus, I thought that I could identify by photo back then. I remember a very large robberfly landed on a stone wall in front of me at a local park. My Wife and I wondered what it could be. we were a bit intimidated because we din't know if it bites or not. I think that it is Echthistus rufinervis but I am not certain of the id. The fly must've been 20+mm so a bit intimidating and probably very scary to many people Smile

photo attached to illustrate my story. back then, I was suckered into believing that a compact camera with digital zoom is a pro setup awkward thus, photo is very bad. yet I still think it should be Echthistus rufinervis

Predators with an attitude, but harmeless to us (usually). It could well be Echthistus, but how to exclude Antipalus? :-) I have too little experience with Echthistus
