Could anybody explain the origin of this term? Neither my books nor Google give any information about. As far I know "eremo-" means "lonely", but this doesn?t help me to understand.

The Eremoneura includes the Empioidea and Cyclorrhapha - all of which have reduced wing venation, compared to the Nematocera and Asiloidea, for instance. I suggest that the term Eremoneura reflects this reduced venation - "lonely veined". Eremo can also mean a waste-land or barren area, and this again can refer to the lack of wing veins in this group.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
