In the south of France on October 26, 2022.
A small Sepsis of 3 mm.
Can we go to the species with the shape of the abdomen, the enlargement at the base of the tibia 3 and spines on the femur 1?
Thanks for your advice

Would it be Sepsis fulgens with these criteria?

Hello Liliane, I think Sepsis fulgens is correct - for instance the ventral protuberance on fore femur seems to fit to the drawing in "The Sepsidae of Europe, Pont/Meier".

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

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