Rhamphina pedemontana

This is one of my favourite tachinids – a species from montane habitats with a huge proboscis that it keeps hinged under the body. It was collected in the French Pyrennes on umbellifer flowers bordering an alpine meadow. Eurithia sp. were also flying at the same time and look superficially very similar.
