A new Estheria sp. 1

Recently I sent a parcel of difficult tachinids to Peter Tschorsnig and he returned them a few weeks ago, with his identifications. One really interesting result was that a tachinid sent to me by Jorge Almeida (caught Serra da Estrela, Portugal; VII.2009) that I had previously determined as E.picta was actually an example of a potential new species. At some time in the future I will send it back to Peter for inclusion in his revision of the genus – and allocation of a new name! 🙂

    That’s fantastic news! Of course I will collect much more!!! Maybe I have 1-2 here in my collection! I will check it soon. In next month hopefully I will find these new tachinids!
