Very nice !!!
Of course a Tabanus of this size is never 'safe', but it is a sudeticus alright.
Notice the reddish eyes: those are greenish in bovinus, reddish in sudeticus. This feature gets lost after death, so thank you very very much for the pictures.

By the way, the feature is Kroeber's, not mine.
I just revived it (Dazen en Dazenlarven, Zeegers & van Haaren, 2000).
