Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Bombyliidae: Exoprosopa jacchus or cleomene?

Hello everybody,

I found this bee-fly in Baden-Württemberg (Germany) near the Swiss border.

In the net I found the very good key of Mark Van Veen and with this I found out that my fly belongs to the genus Exoprosopa (at least I hope that this is right ^^). I can´t really decide if it is Exoprosopa jacchus or E. cleomene.

Can anyone help me with this case? Is it possible to determine the species? Occur both species in southern Germany?

Thanks in advance for help!

Best regards,
Mario

Hello!
I would like to reactivate this thread! :)
Can anyone identify this Bombyliidae? Is Exoprosopa sp. correct and is maybe more possible?

Thanks in advance!
Mario

Exoprosopa is correct. It is in the jacchus group. I cannot ID this group to species due to many very similar described species.
