No Flies on U (Quiz)


This will test your arthropod mettle of a collection of terrestrial (flew around and landed) flies.
Your mission if you choose to accept it is to fill in the gaps of the flies
without labels. This is because I do not seem to have the books and I tried before to put names on the craneflies and managed to get them wrong.

All from coastal Sussex in 2005.

For the champions:


1) http://www.glaucu...Elm113.jpg
2) http://www.glaucu...Elm107.jpg
3) http://www.glaucu...lm110E.jpg
4) http://www.glaucu...Fly009.jpg

Probably not on elm leaves, but in the vicinity of Elm and Hawthorn.


5) http://www.glaucu...Fly018.jpg
6) http://www.glaucu...Fly024.jpg

I am sure that six is plenty enough!
