Postabdomen is too large for Cylindromyia. I initially thought Hemyda but 6mm sounds small to me and the eye profile doesn't look right. It'll be one of the Phasiines that I rarely come into contact with Smile

Thanks a lot for help! I didn`t recognize that it was a tachinid because subscutellum was so diffuse. I will look clooser at Phasiinae ...

It is a Besseria.

Difficult to say more

Many thanks for help to find the correct genera!

It is Besseria melanura according to "Die Raupenfliegen Mitteleuropas" (1994). Seems to be a relatively exclusive species for sandy areas in SE Sweden. The other Besseria-species recorded in Sweden is B. anthophila.

Best regards

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.

11.09.19 13:15
I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

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).

16.07.19 13:31
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
