Hallo Theo,
my answer
a.) The length of my fly has been estimated to be 23 mm from head to wingtip
b.) In the eye you can see a bandage at high magnification. ( see photo)
c.) Tabanus bromius --> length 11,5 mm bis 19,5 mm (Wikipedia)

Theo, is the name Tabanus bromius??

Viele Grüße,

Yes, it is the female of bromius. The other species don’t have eye bands. You must have overestimated its length, this often happens in living specimens.
