Looks to me like Exorista, but I've been wrong before...

Thanks

Yup - looks like Exorista rustica (group - including mimula, tubulosa, rustica) to me (mustard-coloured face dusting, long pointy abdomen, parafacial bristles, 3 post-dc, shadow-fold on median vein) ... most probably E. rustica itself (based on appearance & being very common this time of year) Smile

[tubulosa looks almost identical but is rarer and needs genitalia, while mimula is usually much smaller]

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1

.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.
