Mid Norway 28th Aug 2021

In the central European key, I end up at Limnophora, and from there I end up in couplet 6 for females with L. olympiae and L setinerva.
Neither is registered in Norway as far as I know, but maybe I went wrong somewhere.

R4+5 have bristles approx half way to rm.

Identification of females of Limnophora isn't entirely reliable.
In your case head looks as that of L. riparia. L. riparia usually has 1 p seta on t2, your fly too. L. olympiae and L setinerva have 2 p seta on t2.

Thank you! It does key to L. riparia if I ignore the r4+5 bristles (maybe a variable character?).

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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