Good afternoon,

Can someone please help me identifying this fly?
I believe it belongs to the family Anthomyidae, but I lack the knowledge to be certain about it.
Picture was taken on July 15, at Lagoa da Vela (Vela lagoon), close to Figueira da Foz.
Thanks in advance for any help, and sorry for the poor quality of the photos.
Kind regards,

Fernando

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
