Hello,

this fly was seen in Hannover, Germany on Nov. 18, 2016.
Could it be a Heleomyzidae?

Thank you in advance with best wishes,

Hans

Species of Orbellia have three pairs of scutellar bristles. This fly has two.

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

.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.

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
