today I took a few pictures of a small fly on a leaf (at app. knee height) and I think it might be a Phasia-species. Can that be confirmed/excluded from the attached image? Is there any chance to determine the species?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Garden in Munich (-West), leaf at knee height, 20.05.2024, app. 5-6 mm

Greetings, Uli

It is not Phasia because cell r5 is open.

Ectophasia has open cell r5 and wings with yellow base and dark crossband.

Hi John!

Thank you for the clue. Once you know it, its obvious Wink. So it should be Ectophasia sp., with E. crassipennis being an obvious option.

Greetings, Uli

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
