Hello,

This puparium was found still attached to the remains of a caterpillar inside its silky cocoon weaved between leaves of Dimorphotheca sp:
www.galerie-insecte.org/galerie/image/dos178/big/pupe_parasit_.jp.jpg
7 mm; ii.2017; La Ciotat (France 13)

The "posterior spiracular process" (is it right?):

Unfortunatly the puparium was already open and empty so I didn't see the imago.
Is Cyclorrhapha right?
Is an identification of its family possible?

Using Greene, C. T. (1922). illustrated synopsis of the puparia of 100 muscoid flies (Diptera), the closest I get to is Plagia americana Van der Wulp.
I suspect the host to be Autographa gamma (Noctuidae).

- Plagia americana Van der Wulp is a synonym of Voria ruralis (Fallen, 1810) which is the valid name now; right?
- What do you think about this hypothesis?

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1
0.1111/j.1365-3113
.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx

26.10.17 13:37
