How can L.personata be ruled out?

Good question, so I searched the site. I have had one before which Michael Ackland thought was L. obtusa but stated the critical characters were not really visible so I had to find out what those characters were.

You will see the critical difference on the next link..

I have seen the fly again twice, today I managed to get some much closer shots of the side so I should be be to see for sure. I couldn't see the tiny bristles through the lens but I have yet to download the pics.

Here's a couple of shots which hopefully will confirm L. obtusa.

Seems L.obtusa......I don't see any hairs on notopleural depression, we can see a dark vitta on scutum and lateral margins of scutellum with several rows of setulae.. but the strong rows of upwardly directed setae are very fine.....so i think it could be a female

Thanks Joke. Smile

Is this one of those like in Tachinidae where there's little or no difference in the gap between the eyes?

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
