Hello everyone,

I found this 9 to 10 mm large Gonia today on a dry meadow in southwest Germany. Can the species be identified?

Greetings Siggi

Hello Siggi, I think it's a Gonia vacua, too.

I'd say divisa. Hairs on parafacial very lomg, dust bands on tergites very narrow.

Hi Eric, Theo,
on April 9, 2023 I found a fly in the same place that was determined to be Gonia divisa. Look here: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=5&thread_id=109338
So that could be a good fit and I now write Gonia cf. divisa. This will be the best.

Thanks and greetings,
Siggi

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
