General Notes on my observations

Several species are unterrepresented in my observations. If they do not appear that often in my observations it does not mean that they occour with the same frequency in my area. They are usually quite common. I usually take photos of flower visiting or resting insects in areas with decent light condition.

This affects in general:

Everything living in shadowed or dark environment
Most tiny insects below 2mm size.
Apis melifera
Vespula sp.
Polistes sp.
Formicidae
Heteroptera
Oxythyrea funesta
Cetonia aurata
Nematocera
Arachnida
Haematopota pluvialis

Literature I'm using:
Hoverflies of Northwest Europe by M.P. van Venn, 2004
Britains Hoverflies by Stuart Bell and Roger Morris, 2014
Manual of Central European Muscidae (Diptera), 2016

Unknown Tachinids - ID help needed!

It would be fine if someone could ID those tachinids down to genus level if possible.
