Lypha dubia (Fallén, 1810) 
Widespread across the southern-half of the UK and for many sites, one of the year's first species. Lypha dubia is characteristically small for a Tachinid and easily missed among the number of other flies on the wing in April and May. In Nottinghamshire, it seems restricted to the Sherwood Forest area, where this one was photographed in early May 2020.
