Cyzenis is spring only and looks quite different, to Tachinidae standards.

This is the female of Pales pavida: bluish, tibiae reddish, scutellum red,
(the other bluish genus is Empicampocera, which has tibiae and scutellum black).

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.
