I observed this Tachina the 20th of August in Calais in the north of France. Is it a Tachina fera ?

Cordially Maxime

Be on the lookout for weird Peleteria, around Calais. Check Mentha sp. flowers. Peleteria varia is heading north and active now !

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.
