Hi,

Yesterday I got my book about Tephritidae, and this was my first Tephritidae determined.
I'm accualy not really shure.. Thats why I ask it here Smile

Im not really shure it is Icterica westermanni (=Merzomyia westermanni), because I read it is a rare species in North-Belgium. But still, if anyone could confirm. Are there any Campioglossums similar?

Other info:
Found many animals on Senecio jacobaea (+-10 on 100 meters).
In Ostend (Belgium)
size of the wing: +-6mm from base to tip
date of catch: 14august. (so the animal is collected)

Many thanks, Jonas

surely Merzomyia westermanni. My reason to exclude this species from Icterica and to erect a separate genus was that the N American Icterica and the Olde World "I." westermanni and allied licenti Chen and mongolica Korneyev actually belong to a different tribe... So Merzomyia is the valid generic name.

BTW, it is not rare in the Netherlands: most of my specimens were collected there by Bob van Aartsen and John Smith. It is also present here in Ukraine, but only in the South East.
