Description:

What can I do with this massive Cheilosia specimen? As big as a large muscid, can size narrow it down and then might the front leg do or would I need the genital capsule? I've not had any success with Cheilosia so far and avoid them but perhaps this will be easier as it's much bigger

Thanks. So, add a picture of the front tarsi, and check the epandrium.
