Hi all,

Is this a possible infestation in my collection? There are lots of these "threads" all over the insect, the clearest photo i could get was on the antennae.

Are these signs of an infestation or just dust/fibres?

many thanks!

It is fungus and a sign that your collection is kept in circumstances that are too humid.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
