Hi,

A few days ago I took a few pictures of a sleek, longish insect on the outside wall of our house. My eyes are not the best any more and I became curious because it obviously could move forward and backward with ease. In fact it turned out to be two specimen which were attached to each other, which obviously explains the strange movement pattern.
My guess would be, that it might be some species from the family Scatopsidae. I actually found a similar image in the Scatopsidae gallery, which was labelled "cf. Scatopse notata". Could that be the same species?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Garden in Munich (-West), outside wall, 09.05.2024, app. 8-10 mm (total of two specimen)

Greetings, Uli

Hi Uli, yes it can: I think Scatopse notata is correct.

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
