Dear Forum,

I took this picture today in my glasshouse. I Believe it is a Tephritidae species, but in the gallery and forum posts I didn't find one with the same wing-pattern. Can it be further identified from this picture?

Best regards, Niek

Dear John.

Thank you. That explains why I could not find it with Tephritidae...

Best regards, Niek

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

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
