I found this fly in Szeged, southern Hungary, on 17. VII. 2010. I think it is a Stilpnogaster (on account of shiny tergites) male, but all pictures I was able to find show (European) Stilpnogaster with at least some part of the tibiae red. This one has almost entirely black legs. Did I go wrong somewhere? I would appreciate any comment!

Is at least the genus correct, or am I way off?

Genus seems right. If the tergites are shiny. I understand that this genus needs to revised.

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