Many keys say things like 'Eyes hairy', others are more descriptive saying things like 'Eyes densely hairy' or 'long haired' etc.

I don't know if this will work but here is the url to a small through focus movie of a fly's hairy eye, I would be interested to know how you would describe the hairyness of this eye.

Hmmm, I think I would say hairy, but not densely hairy. However, the movie does not really help one to judge the density very well. A Focus stacked still photo might be better? Smile

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
