Hi,
in a vinegar trap to catch Drosophila, I found a male and a female Suillia. As it is not S. variegata, the species will be difficult to determine, and I haven't found a key that is open access. Does anybody know of one?
I kept the two specimina and I am interested in determining them, so help would be very much appreciated. As the genitals are quite prominent, I took some pictures of them - maybe this could give a hint or narrow down the possible species?

The flies were caught in the inner city of Vienna.

Greetings,
Lorin

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.

I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
