Description Tachinidae are the largest family of flies (882 spp. in Europe). Its members are parasitoids previously of Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Heteroptera and former Orthoptera. Tachinids may be regarded as economically beneficial when they develop in pests of agriculture and forestry. Nearly 2900 tachinid specimens were studied from the Podyjí NP and there were 227 spp., i.e. nearly 48 % of the Czech Fauna. The majority of the material was obtained in Malaise traps (72 %) or pan traps (23 %). Only 3 % were swept, 2 % collected by other methods. None of the collected species was extraordinarily abundant. The most abundant species of the treated material were: P. obscura (132 specimens), T. setipennis (113 specimens) and C. interrupta (82 specimens). Nine species were recorded for the first time from the Czech Republic ans additional 13 species represent first records for Moravia.
