Attachments to Gallery
Some of you may have noticed, some of you probably not. I have done some code tinkering and can now add image attachments from the forum to the Gallery without too much hassle, but only when they are not on remotes servers. I may grab images for the Gallery myself but if you want to have images THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN added to the Gallery, please send me an email. Do NOT use Private Messages as that may flood my inbox in no time. I will not mind adding your own pictures to the Gallery on request, but, please, realise my time is limited and I cannot continuously scan the forum for possible Gallery additions. And, sorry, the feature is available to administrator only.

Thaumatomyia glabra (Meigen, 1830), Chloropidae. The only European Thaumatomyia species with largely reduced hairs on the body [the only reason for Loew (1866) to create an own genus for it, the synonym Chloropisca]. Well known as a chloropid with zoophagous larvae, predators of root lice (Pemphigidae), e.g. on the roots of carrots. Different from its congeneric species notata (Meigen) it rarely aggregates in swarms in autumn. But single specimens regularly enter the notata swarms. In North America several publications report swarms. The species is well known as a flower visitor as documented on this photo. The first detailed article on the biology: Parker, J.R. 1918: The life history and habits of Chloropisca glabra Meig., a predaceous oscinid (chloropid).- Journal of economic Entomology 11: 368-380.

This not a Psychoda, I think. The way the wings are held is not OK, the venation isn't. It is somewhere i tribus Telmatoscopini.

I don't think this is Clogmia albipunctata, it lacks the white dots along the wing border. And it has too much white on the prothorax. But it defnitely is of tribus Telmatoscopini, as Clogmia is.

Pachylophus, Loew, 1858, Chloropidae, is a very characteristic component of the Afrotropical chloropid fauna with species also in the Middle East. Many species are still undescribed and many are hosts of parasitic ascomycete fungi, the Laboulbeniales. All species are viviparous, in most species two larvae develop synchronously. The hind femora are always enlarged.

The fly is Paradryomyza spinigera, not Pseudoneuroctena senilis. The ventral spines on hind femora are diagnostic for Paradryomyza./Sven

Thank very much Paul it is very helpful to know these words

Hinterleib -> abdomen; Ring -> Segment, because strictly speaking it is the tergite and sternite that form the ring.

03.06.16 12:10
Another couple of old words which I would be grateful for help on Hinterleib narrow, light grey with a pair of small rounded spots on Ring 2 and 3, 4th Ring ungefleckt Hinterleib- ? Ring - terga?
