A friend in Letsibogo, Botswana, caught these two shots of a moderate-sized member of the Stratiomyidae (I think!) but we both wonder whether anyone could narrow that down a bit.
Two photos. She estimated the size as 10-12 mm.
IDs, discussions or guesses would be welcome.
Thanks for attention.

Odontomyia sp. One of the few metallic species. They need a revision before you can get a species ID... very pretty fly

Martin, many thanks. That was most helpful.
Forgive my delayed reply; I haven't been "flying" much lately. But I shall pass this on.
Cheers,
Jon

Thanks very much Paul

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

16.03.17 12:41
