Muscidae fly-Phaonia spp? by wirralbirder46

Hi All
Another image from 2005 taken from the Wirral Cheshire has been uploaded to the Gallery.The bulge on the outer wing seems consistent with Phaonia. Also from the image I think I can see three posterior setae on the mid-tibia.
I am a novice at this so may be way off the mark

Cheers Harry

Hi All
Need help in identifying this Horsefly.I think it may be a male Hybomitra species possibly H.distinguenda.I have rules out ciureai as I doubt it is a Cheshire candidate.
Cheers Harry
