I have two of these large Tachinidae from Southern Finland. The specimens are from 2012 and been in alcohol since that, so they are not in best condition. Any hints what genus they might be, if I try to use the key ?

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
