Dear All,

I was unable to identify this very special fly. The picture was taken today in my garden in Liechtenstein.

I shall be grateful for any suggestions.

Best, Buba

I think it's Limnia unguicornis Sciomyzidae. It should be posted in the Diptera Forum NOT the Overviews Section.

Thanks a lot, Roger!

And you are of course right, I simply overlooked that I was in the overview section when I started the new thread.

Best regards, Burkhard.

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