Hey friends

I found Chaetostomella cylindrica, from which I sent you my first photo, which now is in the Gallery, that day in several specimen. About 5 within much less than one sqaremeter.

I also shot the attached photo, but I am not shure, wheather that was only a try from a male to attack another male or if it was real mating. Perhaps someone can decide that from the photo?

Or more general, is it possible that one male allows annother male to "sit up"? Or a female if it is not really willing?

Thanks for y o u r try.
Siga attached the following image:

P.S. and do you want to have this photo (in spite of bad quality) in the Gallery?

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
