These are French Guianan stratiomyids photographed by Stephane Brule - are they the same species - can they be identified? Smile

Yes, indeed Cyphomyia, and there are some lookalikes with this appearance, like auriflamma, banksi, bequaerti and sulcifrons. Maybe even more but I don't know them all. It's a female, males look quite different, without the yellow head for example.

Thanks guys - they're certainly lovely flies. Which features are used to identify the species?

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
