Dear All,

www.naturedugard.org/images/4/3333.jpg

I took this photo in South of France, Gard, Fournès, the 21/06/2011.

On insecte.org forum we think to a Bombylisoma because of the nervation. But I can't find something similar in some pictures seen on the Web.

Which will be your diagnostic ?

Thank you,


Jean-Laurent Hentz

It is Systoechus.
Regards
Piet

Thank you to put us on the good railway...

If I can eliminate S. ctenopterus with his black hair in the yellow fur, could I propose S. longirostris or is it too much presomptuous ?

An other question with this picture : does the color of the eyes change with sex ou age of the fly ? Because pictures show dark eyes or red eyes as mine.

It is not the wing nervation of Systoechus.

Wing venation would be consistent with Bombylisoma, if I see it well.
Greetings,

Bombylisoma for sure, no shadow of doubt. The trouble is to give a positive ID for the species with only this picture. A more frontal view would be very welcome. If it turns out to be a female, there might be a chance it is B. melanocephalum (bold sexual dimorphism in this species). But again, with only this picture I would keep it as Bombylisoma sp.

Thank you.

I have no other picture but for sure I will be vigilant if I return in this part of the Gard.

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.

I'm relieved you managed to fix the site, Paul! You had us a bit worried there Wink

still a failure

Or a write right in the temp folder.

Error 122 is probably a full disk or over quote.
