Early May, Vienna.

Fore tarsi are dark and the black abdominal stripe widens towards the end of T5

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

ok, in Tschorsnig's key it says 'fore tarsus yellow' - I read this as all the tarsi would be yellow, but apparently it should read: fore metatarsus?

When I checked Steven Falk's Flickr Album, the specimen he shows an magnicornis also has the fore metatarus more orange then the other tarsal segments:

First of all, that is a male. Never compare femalex with males.
Secondly, i disagree. Metatars 1 is dark, only metatars 2 is orange.

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
