Cretan and Dutch tachinids

Today I will be working on a nice little batch of tachinids sent to me my Ruud van der Weele and collected by him in Crete and at home in the Netherlands.

They are mainly a nice mixture of typical southern European genera (Gymnosoma, Cylindromyia, & Eliozeta).

Many thanks to Ruud for his generous donation! 🙂


EDIT (16/6/2012): The species list so far:

Netherlands: Platymya fimbriata, Tachina fera, Thelaira nigripes.

Crete: Aphria longirostrisBrullaea ocypteroidea*, Eliozeta helluoGonia ornata, Peleteria varia.

* = new to me
