Empis nitidiventris/pseudomalleola

Hello friends,

I have a pretty female Empis from Istria, which belongs obviously to E. nitidiventris or E. pseudomalleola. Weber in the Fauna Hungariae is not too clear about the difference.
The legs are clearly brownish, so pseudomalleola? Yet this species is rather alpine, so then rather nitidiventris?

I would like to have the good description of both species. Help will be so much appreciated.

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