Thread subject: :: Asilus ?

Good evening,

May I ask your help to confirm my identification of Asilus craboniformis ?
This big fly was coming and going nervously from leave to leave in an grassy land (Vis?, Montagne Saint-Pierre, Belgium, 19.06.2005).

Thank you.

Hi Eric,

Asilus is brown-red and yellow in colour.
This here is a female Eutolmus rufibarbis.
Distinctive are de black legs, with black bristles and somewhat orange-red hairs in between.
