- Loxocera aristata
- Loxocera fulviventris
- Loxocera hoffmannseggi
- Loxocera nigrifrons
- Loxocera sylvatica

for sure is not L.hoffmannseggi or L.ichneumonea. the antennae are too long.
again is not L.fulviventris (face is not black)
not L.nigrifrons (scutellum is not black)

i don't know if on the face is a black median line, if yes is L.sylvatica
if not L.albiseta or L.algerica
L.albiseta mesonotum anterior largely black
L.algerica mesonotum anterior with some black, and a median line that go all the way until at scutellum

this is after Seguy (Faune de France)

hope this helps you,

Thanks Dmitry, I'll try this.

Try to contact associate editors and/or members, 10th Editorial Board of Acta Entomologica Sinica, occupied at Dept. of Entom. of CAU, e.g. GAO Xi-Wu; LI Zheng-Xi; SHEN J

Dear Friends. Could someone provide me a contact in the Insect Colletions of the China Agriculture University ? Regards.

Species with mouth parts that appear to be 'similar', like Sargus, do feed on honeydew. I have never seen Hermetia in nature...

18.09.15 16:42
Thanks Paul, some sites report that it don't have functional mouth part, other sites say it feed nectar, some publications say it "probably" feed nectar and it's a pollinator.

18.09.15 10:57
Sounds like it might be. Do sites that 'say not' state that they do feed or don't they mention anything?

14.09.15 19:42
Question: is it true that the Hermetia illucens don't have functional mouth part? Some sites say yes and some other say not. It's a bit confused. Thanks Smile
