Strymon river bank, far northern Greece, 24th Novemeber 2009. On a dead dog of course. I think this is a heleomyzid.

I must admit i am a bit confused about how other people will see these images. On the Mac they look fine, but as I don't have photoshop or much else on the Mac yet I loaded the images, converted to Tiffs, onto a stick to move them to the ordinary PC, where I converted them to 'for the web' as Photoshop was refusing to save them as jpgs in 'save as'. They look dull and dark on the PC, as jpgs or as tiffs, but I have left them alone except for resizing them down to 650pp wide and saving. I will be interested to hear what they look like on other people's screens - bright or dull??????

Hi Gordon, the fly at bottom is a male of Centrophlebomyia furcata (Piophilidae). I think the fly at top is the female, but I'm less sure. Very nice find ! Smile

The pictures are correct !

This species (and others like it) are among the Holy Grails of diptera: please go back to the unfortunate hound and collect some : you will find willing takers (me included !).

Hi Gordon

Colours and saving file: I had similar problems as you write and found (for my work) following reason: working on one side with ProPhoto-RGB and on the other side with normal Adobe RGB. Since I made the whole workflow without ProPhoto-RGB it is working right. It's only an idea . . . I could imagine that Mac works with the "greater" "Farbraum" of ProPhoto-RGB . . . .
Kind Regards, Brigitte

Hmmm niceWink Known from Czech Republic and Sardinia according to FE - so probably a new record for Greece.

Phil - I have been out to the dog again, the Ravens have nearly finished with it, and I have I think 3 of the target species plus a few other things - including the next fly I will post pictures of. I can send you 2 and Stephane a female if she would like.

By the way, in shoutbox, Roger called Andre many times Andrea. Sorry for pointing that out Roger Grin

Anyway, a very nice found, this fly is! Congratulations! All I found nowadays are Trichocerids and Heleomyzids and Platypezids.

Nice day to everybody Smile

Walter (by the way, in Hungary it is written 'Valter', which means I was regularly called Falter in Germany)

That Walter, is/was a running joke and was intended,
Gerard Pennards became Geraldine, I in returned was called among other things Rogaldino...just having a laugh, unlike Gordon who mistook Stephane for a girl/woman. I think he has been out in the sun for too long....Grin

Could be worthwile to put another carcass close to the dog carcass and maybe protect it from the ravens with a net. Pig, goat, sheep, dog or any road kill you can get your hands on. I believe that the litterature states that they are found preferably on carcasses of larger mammals. Congratulations to a nice find!

And I suppose that they are called bone-skippers for a reason and it might pay off to visit the bones long after the ravens have left. You might want to put the bones in a pile and protect it from scavengers with netting. Who knows what will turn up there....I attached a picture of Thyreophora cynophila, a species to look out for!

I heard Thyreophora and alikes may be virtually extinct from Europe, it would be great to find one!

Come, come Phil, that made the Lipsh Writhe (enough to make me lisp) at the thought of it. Still life in the old dog yet...which is more than can be said for the one in Gordon's Pics.

Moe Shortorgan Wink.....thanks for that one StephenR (I knew it would come in handy) Pfft

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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