Hello. I'm wondering if this male robberfly belongs to the Dysmachus group. Found it some days ago in the south of Germany in a meadow. Markus

Hello Markus,

i think that it looks like Machimus rusticus but it isn't Dysmachus. Wait for Reinoud's opinion.

I hope that you have a pleasant day.

I agree with John and Nini :-) A lateral picture would be nice, but the red base of the the tibiae is visible on the front legs.
Greetings,

Thank you. Thus it is Machimus rusticus. (... i've hoped it was Dysmachus sp. ...)

Hello Markus,

i just want to mention that i found Dysmachus in a forest. I usually do not go to the forest but this year i decided to check the forest for new finds. You should look in a forest around your area. I remember that the forest has several ponds, an area with encaged wildschwein and many wild deer roaming around. I found it in June, so you may still have time to find them.

I hope that you find Dysmachus.

It of course it depends on the species you want to find. Didysmachus picipes prefers the same habitat as M. rusticus but flies earlier in the year. Dysmachus trigonus may appear anywhere if there is sufficient sand arround, I have no experience with Dysmachus fuscipes which looks similar to D. picipes and may prefer similar grassy habitat.
Greetings,

Reinoud

Hello Reinoud and Markus,

I have to apologize for my last post because the info is incorrect. I actually found Dysmachus in heathland with lots of sand. I must've been thinking of Neoitamus, which I found in a forest. I'm happy that Reinoud posted or i may not have noticed the error.
