Hi Eugene K,

Themira nigricornis! Meron entirely pruinose and wide, orange genae. Probably in the vicinity of a carcass? In spring you can find them in the Netherlands on carcasses of Roe deer.

Kind regards,

Eugene K

Thank you, Ectemnius. In fact, there were no carcasses nearby. It was early spring, flies gathered on a freshly cut stump flowing out of juice.
Thanks again

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
