Why not Potamia littoralis?

I read that Potamia never had ad on t2
The longest aristal hairs are 1/3 of the flagellomere
And i can't find a strong submedian pv seta on t3
There is a strong seta above the pd, but in the same line as the not pv

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