Eurithia anthophila (Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830)
This large, black Tachinid is common across southern parts of the UK, where it is found in woodland and well vegetated sites. There appear to be no recent Nottinghamshire records, but it is almost certainly an under-recorded species. The specimens illustrated, were found and photographed by Pauline Bradford at Dyscarr Wood and Carlton-in-Lindrick in 2015 and 2016.
