Hi together,

I've found this nice hoverfly a couple of days ago (Thu, Sept. 07th, 2017) in the evening close to Puuluoto (Finnland, Lappland, Tornio) on cf. Achillea sp. Size was about 8mm in length.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Thank you. Yes - I've done it now. The file was too large.

no blanks in filename, file size reduced (below 300 k or so).Did you fulfill these criteria ?

I've repeatedly tried to upload a photo with my thread but nothing is showing. I can't see that I've done anything wrong. Can someone please assist?

I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
