This Empididae was photograped by Hein Nouwens on 11 May 2016 near Bergen op Zoom, Noord-Brabant, The Netherlands. I think it could be Empis punctata. Or is it E. trigramma after all?

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.

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
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.
