Tachinidae or not Tachinidae, that's the question again.
Something like the first one (16-06, Heerlen) I saw at Chris Rapers' site, is it Thelaira nigrina indeed ?
About the others I better keep my mouth, although to me the second (15-09, Heerlen) looks more like a Tachinid than the third (30-08, near Brunssum).

Ben Hamers attached the following image:

Hi Ben

All your remarks are right

-1) Tachinidae: Thelaira nigripes
-2) Tachinidae: could not give a species name from picture
-3) Sarcophagidae: either Sarcophaginae or Brachycoma devia

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
