I photographed the attached on 8/8/06 in South East England and I am attempting to identify the family.

Whilst doing so it dawned on me, Shock am I looking at the correct features ?

I have circled and put a square around what I identify as :-

1. Fan of hypopleural bristles.
2. Post-humeral and presutural.

Perhaps someone could assist and let me know whether I have it right or not.

Many thanks

P.S. if you know what the fly is that would help as wellSmile

Until I find time to do it here for the Glossary, check here http://www.dipter...p?cat_id=9. Make sure you use the fly picture (not the gnat). To locate the hypopleuron, look for meron.

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