Eriothrix rufomaculata (De Geer, 1776)
Eriothrix rufomaculata is a very common Tachinid Fly of grassy areas. It is widespread across the UK and in Nottinghamshire, where it is restricted only through being under-recorded. There seem to be few records from east of the Trent Valley, but it should be present in most habitats.
