According to the shown mating behavior in http://www.dipter...;pid=40982 I think it should be a Meiosimyza as well.
Found on a Urtica leaf in the evening of 2013-08-04 in the Burgwald, Hesse, Germany. Regards, Ingo

Honestly, I cannot see enough detail to say what species of Meiosimyza it is, though do I see a kind of shadow on the end of the longitudinal veins indicating it is rather Tricholauxania praeusta? But, I am not very convinced, because I do not see any other marking on crossveins etc.

Thank you very much. I've gone back to this mating location and have collected two flies. So I hope to get a few photos of them taken by a friend of mine in the next days. I'm just a videographer..
Regards, Ingo

Hello, can any1 tell me if both male and female Empis flies eat other flies or is it just the female? Thx

21.04.17 15:08
Thanks very much Paul

18.04.17 20:24
Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

11.04.17 13:37
In Dutch some would use it as plural, for 'exemplaar' (exemplar or specimen). Ten exx. then is ten specimens.

10.04.17 16:21
Thanks Phil I am thinking exuviae but I can't find the abbrev. so perhaps so

09.04.17 12:25
I haven't come across it but I suspect it means 'examples'.

08.04.17 11:27
Hell has anyone come across the meaning of exx? and what it means

01.04.17 11:43
Thanks very much

25.03.17 21:53
Ibid. is short for Latin ibidem, meaning 'in the same place', so = 'same as the previous reference'. Smile

25.03.17 13:09
Cab any1 help out with the full name if the journal IBID Thx
