I have very little experience with Stratiomyidae.
seems to be 8mm. I've added some microscopic photos (terminalia, haltere, hairy eyes)

Finally, the third antennal segments seem to be missing.
Is it possible that a soldier fly can drop them like a grasshopper with its legs?
otherwise, I have no idea why they are missing. Any ideas?

Some flies lose terminal antenna segments when collected.

Very interesting. Thank You John!

Imagine if I needed this segment for identification (like a chalcid).
I would be freaking out right now Smile

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.

I'm relieved you managed to fix the site, Paul! You had us a bit worried there Wink

Error 122 is probably a full disk or over quote.
