I photographed this Asilidae near the little village of Salbertrand in Susa Valley, Piedmont (Italy) at 1000 mt above sea level, on June 18th, 2017. Could it be a Machimus?

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.
