Hello,
this appr. 5 mm Acroceridae was found near Bitterfeld, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany on June 15. Could it be Ogcodes zonatus?

I would be pleased by an answer!

Hello,
I think it cannot be determined to a species.

Dear Christian,
no, I am sorry. Because I'm no dipterist I didn't collect it.

Dear Hans,
indeed a very interesting specimen! It would be highly informative to study it in more detail. In my opinion following characters disagree with the O. zonatus hypotheses: the shapes of the band on tergites, the yellowish halter knob and the transparent margin of the calypter (all are quite variable). I would favor O. gibbosus (L.) instead for males of that species this combination would be more typical, only the tibias are unusually dark (also a very variable characterSmile). To ensure it would be necessary to investigate some microscopic characters.
best wishes Raphael

Dear Raphael,

thank you very much for your informative reply!
Yes, the tibiae seem to be very dark in these pictures. I attach another one in that
they are a bit lighter.
I will privately keep my pictures as Ogcodes cf. gibbosus.

Thanks again with best wishes to you, Raphael!
