Tachinid fly (<em>Hemyda aurata</em>)

Tachinid fly (Hemyda aurata)

This large tachinid fly is another new addition to our FWG insect list. We found it while mothing at night in the Ash Woods. It seems to have a damaged left leg. This is a fairly common fly throughout this area and I guess we've just not noticed it before at the garden, though I have seen it elsewhere in the region.
