Hello,

I photographed this fly in Bazzano (AQ), Italy, on December 10th 2020. I think it is a Tachinidae, but is it possible to identify the genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Looks like a female Meigenia. Vertex is relatively broad. It might be M. incana, if you have this species.

Thank you very much Theo! According to Fauna-eu M. incana is not present in Italy.

Well, better to identify Meigenia based on male genitalia.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them
