Some West Malaysian tachinids

Many years ago Professor Donald Quicke gave me some malaise trap samples from a project he was running in the Cameron Highlands of West Malaysia. The specimens have languished in boxes for ages but just recently I have started to work on them using Crosskey (1976). The key works fairly well but there are quite a few that fall through it for one reason of another so more work will have to be done.

Here are some photos of some of the specimens:
