I suspect this is geniculatus. There is a very similar species in Portugal - Ochlerotatus echinus, but I believe it flies later in the year. A specimen would make sure!

Thanks Tony. I collected the specimen. I attached a picture of the scutellum, can you tell which species it is?

The scutellar scales are as narrow and as yellow as those on my British geniculatus, so I'd say it is that. Oc.echinus have broader, whiter scales on the scutellum (though I don't have any comparative material here). If you are in woodland with old trees, it's worth catching any similar mosquitoes flying at present - they may well be echinus.

Thank you very much Tony, I'll keep that in mind. Smile

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

15.09.19 20:41
Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

11.09.19 13:15
I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
