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.

Great!

thank you very much.
I'm glad my first Tephritidae-determination was right. I will add the photo to the gallery.

Bye, Jonas

Hi hope so can tell me if this is ok griffes et pelotes - claws and pulvilli Thx

09.05.15 12:04
Thx Stephane, I see by rather than from- no your English is great!

09.05.15 11:53
No, I would understand : "Calypters small, the lower one is projecting over the upper one by 3/4" (my english is probably not the best).

09.05.15 10:47
Thx Stephane p296 Seguy Calypters small, le thoracique saillant des 3/4 the lower is 3/4 the size or length of the upper? is that how you understand it

08.05.15 21:20
I assume the sentence talk about calypters (cuillerons) : it means that the lower (thoracic) one is protruding.

07.05.15 14:11
Can anyone help out with a translation for le thoracique saillant.. (its not thorax!) Thx

01.05.15 07:55
Thanks Tony. Curious all those flies belong to different families but all of them have white face. Maybe that is useful to see inside burrows?
