Hi,
found on 23-June-2018 Worms, Rhineland, Germany.
Near a nature reserve with cows...
It rested on a stone - it was so big I was stunned... in my mind approximately 3cm
Can it be further identified?
Many thanks and regards,
Stella

They look big, don’t they ? If you’d actually measure its length, head to tail, it is around 18- 19 mm.

Male Tabanus autumnalis.

T. sudeticus is even 40-50 % larger !

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.
