Can anyone confirm this is Prosena siberita? The fly was seen in Tornada, Portugal on the last 8th of August.

Hi Rui,

from what i have readed/learned here.
from specimens i have, i will say it is.

was interesting to see hat when i have meet the species there on two trunks of beech where on/flying around something like more or less 100 specimens. was interesting o see that.

but anyway i think is better to wait a professional opinion.

nice photo.

They seem to like sitting on pale vertical surfaces. While chatting to a friend on a local nature reserve recently I noticed a Prosena on his leg (old, white corduroy trousers) ... I caught it of course Wink Then seconds later he got another ... and another ... got some photos too, though we were both very glad there were no people walking by at the time Grin

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
