ID guess

With no confidence Mick, have a look at Ilione albiseta, located on an internet trawl.

stumped

it seems to lack the long white aristae of Ilione albiseta, nor does it have the dark tarsi of my Tetanocera images, so I'm stumped

Edit: on reflection I do think Chris has a point, perhaps the aristae aren't quite showing up as well as they might due to the light background

Thanks

To Chris Brooks, Jeremy,
For their help.
On googling looks good for Ilione albiseta.

Thanks again,

I still don't think it actually is I.albiseta, or that it can be decided from the pictures, there are many similar I think. But I could well be wrong

I'd bung it on diptera info
