Jorge, what do you have against snails? It is nice and harmless animals! Sepedon has nothing against snails - as Don Corleone said - "nothing personal, just business".

P.S. You can find Sepedon of the grass growing from water

i don?t like snails, they destroy some plants here. Sad When I said many I would mean hundreds of them! During the night, I was suprised when I walked above a "snail ground". awkward and hear just "cratch" "cratch" awkward


I see that there are_ "Larvae (of Sciomyzidae) prey on slugs and freshwater snails."

I will try to seek for these Sciomyzidae flies. I never saw one. Perhaps do they like more cold weather?

This Sepedon S.spinipes do not recorded in Portuguese, but blackish Sepedon sphegea and rare Sepedon femorata (I wish to have a specimen!) do. Sepedon has nothing against hot weather - it is mostly tropical genus. Other Sciomyzidae prefer the shadow places, you will find a lot in Portuguese.
Bon chance, JorgeGrin

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
