Tachinid fly

Subfamily Tachininae


Many tachinids are similar in general appearance to muscids and flesh flies; many are large, bristly, and beelike or wasplike in appearance. Presence of a subscutellum is a useful character: Bristle pattern, facial conformation, and antennal shapes all help identify genera; images that show these features have a better chance of being identified.
