Another stunner! This family is among my favourites.

This is a very nice Trichophthalma sp. from Murchison - Western Australia. Photos are credited to my friend Jean Hort.
If anyone knows the species of this one, it would be great. Id genus by Jefferies. I agree with this ID. No idea on species, though. Sad

Hovering on myrtle flowers.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

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
