Thanks. I think I have a key to those, though it doesn't get much use.

Thanks Paul

I think min Xanthempis both do, in other subgenera the males hunt and females eat.

25.04.17 14:14
Hello, can any1 tell me if both male and female Empis flies eat other flies or is it just the female? Thx

21.04.17 15:08
Thanks very much Paul

Nice occur on the Dutch television Paul!

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
