Interestingly, just 1 hour ago I saw this footage on tv (National Geographic, series Bite me) here in Hungary. I think the original footage was filmed by BBC and Attenborough, however.

The scene is from BBCs "Life in the undergrowth", I recommend getting the dvd.

I will spend a couple of days hunting the amazing looking Sheep Botfly (Oestrus ovis) this summer, I have no big hopes though.

Maybe I'll come home with oral mucosa myiasis Shock

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
