Valter, unfortunately I cannot give a name to your fly but it is a species very common here in Spain at the moment and we have had it under study for quite a while. You know the problem with Machimus group. It is just a matter of patience to know what it is. You specimen will be extremely welcome Smile

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
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.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).
