Good evening,

here are two pictures from May 2022. I think as they are Phasia obesa, but am not quite sure. Body length 4 - 5 mm, habitat sandy dry grassland in southwest Germany.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Bembix, I've never seen one before but leads me to male Eulabidogaster setifacies.
It resembles a Phasia obesa and belongs to the Phasiinae, but Phasia has a long petiole on r4+5.

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
