Mintho
Description:

I was just cataloguing some old photos and wondered if anyone could confirm the id of this fly?
Although this photo was taken in 2006 I have seen it in the same location in 2008 and last year.

Mintho

Certainly looks right. Rare. Usually spotted in SE England. Probably under reported. Good Spot!

Record details

If you could let me have details of all your Mintho sightings for the Tachinid Recording Scheme I would be grateful.

It is an uncommon fly but we do seem to be picking up a number of records for it recently, mostly from photos. Luckily it is one of the limited number of Tachinid species we can identify from a good photo.
