Thread subject: :: Tachinid from Heracleum #1: Hemyda vittata? (07.08.09) --> confirmed

Posted by Juergen Peters on 09-08-2009 22:11


This 5-6 mm Tachinid is a new one for me. Found two days ago on Heracleum sphondylium near forest (northwest Germany). is Hemyda vittata correct or are there similar species? Can something be said about the host(s) of this fly? I have read that H. obscuripennis is parasitizing mostly Arma custos (Pentatomidae).
