I observed this Tachinidae the 7th of October in Calais in the north of France. I hesitate with Peleteria varia or Tachina fera/magnicornis ? Maybe Peleteria varia ? What do you think ?

Cordially maxime

There is little to go on, but general impression is Tachina.

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.
