An interesting Tachinid, remniniscent of Phryxe.

Well, the scutellum is black, so no Phryxe.

It is a female of one of the two Eumea’s.

Thanks. I checked Mihályi, if I find any clue how to separate the females of the two species, but there is very little. Maybe mitis is less likely, as the femals are supposed to have a very weak thoracic dusting, which allegedly is visibe only from viewing it from behind.

By the way should the eyes of Eumea not be hairy? I do not see hairs here, but the angle may be tricky.

The eyes are hairy, check the right eye closely.
Females Eumea are very similar.
