Here's another one of me, this time in Ilomantsi (93 N lat, 31 E long).

This perticular old-growth forest is the home of Xylomya czekanowskii, Xylophagus kowarzi, Lejota ruficornis and many other lovely flies. The weather was rather cool and it was easy to catch the smaller flies directly from the tree trunks with a pooter.

Let's try again, this time with the invisibility cape off.

Reaching 93 deg. N lat isn't easy but it is certainly worth the effort. PM me if you want to know how to do it.... Pfft

There is no such thing as 93 ?N for latitude, BUT there is a cartographic course that can be 93 ?N Grin. Measuring since from North through the compass, we can determine the course of 93? Smile

18viii08, Bay of Fundy (Atlantic Ocean), NB, Canada.

Heading out into a saltmarsh in search of tabanids & flies; my better side.

The rubber boots a good idea, the bare knees, short-sleeved shirt and no hat, not quite so smart.

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
