7.5 mm, Arncliffe Yorkshire UK, 5 June 2011

I found this in a moribund state indoors. Gregor's key leads me to H. impuncta, but according to the description the fronto-orbital plates should be touching. The paired spots on t2&3 look strong when lit from behind, but less so in the photo. I couldn't get much reassurance from the genitalia, but they look as close to H. impuncta as to any of the other spp. illustrated.

I think about Helina impuncta too, but can't confirm, as I have too less experience (I'm just interested)Smile Very common at the moment here too. Regards, Niels.

This is an odd one. As far as I know, with prst acr., it can only be Helina impuncta or Helina quadrata (rarely in H. lasiophthalma one can find 1-2 elongated prst acr.).
With 1+2 ks and bare eyes, I can't see anything exept H. impuncta.
Stephane.

Thanks Stephane! I'm glad I was right to be puzzled.

Here in Britain it has been a very poor season for all insects. Most families of fly have been very scarce compared to some years ago. This is about the fifth poor season and it was the worst yet. Wha

May was very atypical and April. April was very cold - the coldest month in 30 years. And May was very rainy. But this does not explain itself why the decrease of insects. Or it is just a normal cyc

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.

Well it should be compared to the insect diversity and numbers of that region for the last years/decades...

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
