Thread subject: :: Tachinidae - Compsilura concinnata (not Clemelis)

Nice. Compsilura is highly polyphagous, and I think the only Tachinidae regularly found in both Lepidoptera and Symphyta.
And yes, it is atypical for a Blondeliini in having hairy eye, 4 post DC and so on. Males therefore are tricky.

Compsilura is still common in southern Europe, but has become extremely rare if not extinct in large areas of central Europe, I haven’t found it since my youth. No idea what is happening.
