Hi Forum,

Im trying to find information on the Tabanidae Silvius vituli.

When i look in your Gallery S. vituli and S. alpinus are different species, but Fauna Europaea states that they are synonyms, and the only real name is S. alpinus.

http://www.faunae...p?id=66136

Should i categorize the S. vituli under S. alpinus?

Any advice would be helpfull.

Cheers
Per

Hi! Silvius vituli is the old name for S. alpinus (although according to Olsufjev, 1977, alpinus is the nomen oblitum for vituli Wink, hence in the soviet and post-soviet literature this species is still mentioned as vituli). So vituli in the gallery should be corrected on alpinus. There is a lot of confusion in the names of Diptera, especially in such a complex groups as Tabanidae, Ceratopogonidae, etc. And not the least cause of such imbroglio is the notorious "iron curtain".

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
