I have found this acrocerid on 20. july 2017 in Germany, Rhineland-Palatinate, in a wineyard. I think it might be A. sanguinea, but I am uncertain abot the wing venation. Can anyone identify this specimen?

Best regards

Hello Theo,
thanks for the confirmation. I just wanted an expert opinion because Acroceridae are a taxonomically difficult group wich I have not encountered before.

Best regards

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
