Hello!

This only 3-4 mm long, slender fly with thick hind femora I photographed yesterday on a meadow here in Ostwestfalen/Germany. Can someone tell me the family or even the genus? Thanks in advance!

Looks like a chloropid to me, but I have no idea about the genus.

Is Meromyza not the only genus of the group of similar chloropids with thickened femora?

Thanks to you both! I have found pictures of Meromyza (saltatrix) that look very much like my fly.

Best regards,
Jürgen

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
