Tachinids from La Palma

I received a really interesting parcel today from a friend who holidayed in La Palma earlier this year. He had spotted some Tachina that looked quite different from the run-of-the-mill Tachina fera so he took a few, along with a couple of other tachinids. On close examination, and after taking advice from Peter Tschorsnig, they have turned out to be the Canary Islands endemics: Tachina canariensis & Pales cyanea with the slightly more widespread Pseudogonia fasciata!
