Among some diptera from Turkey I found a fly, which appears to be a Campsicnemus magius (Lw). This species is very peculiar indeed, so it is hardly possible to make a mistake, though, perhaps, in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean there are more very similar species.
According the Cat. of Pal. Diptera the species is not recorded from Turkey before. Is one of you perhaps familiar with the Dolichopidae of Turkey? Or does one of you have the e-mail address of Negrobov?

Dear Ruud,
Turkish dolis are still badly studied, and Campsicnemus magius is still not recorded here. Nevertheless, the species is known from northern and western Black Sea coast. And it has no sister species in Mediterraneans.

BTW, it decorates the front cover of Studia Dipterologica.

well, I think that it is almost impossible to make a mistake with the determination of males C. magius. I think the collector will be happy with his finding!

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
