This specimen pictured at Huy (Ben-Ahin's reserve) Belgium on 2018-05-25.
Seems to be Tabanus autumnalis ?
Thank you for confirmation

I see an eyeband. So it can’t be autumnalis. It is actually maculicornis. The greyish-blue (or bluish-grey) colouration is characteristic !

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.
