Thanks Tony

Very interesting. We have only one Hydromyza in Finland, livens. It is pretty rare here. I have to ask still Jere, maybe we can take cf. away TumbsUp

Your specimen looks darker than most of the H. livens I've seen. Of course that may be a feature of Finnish populations. Hopefully Jere will confirm (or make a better suggestion!) Smile
