Hi everybody,
I'm struggling with the taxonomy of the two Dutch Parallelomma species. When I look in the checklist by Beuk, I can see two species:

* Parallelomma media Becker, 1894
* Parallelomma vittata (Meigen, 1826)

When I look in the key from Ball (2007), Key to the British Scathophagidae (Diptera), two species are mentioned:
* Parallelomma paridis Hering, 1923
* Parallelomma vittatum (Meigen, 1826)

Of course it might be possible that paridis is another species that occurs in Britain, but not in the Netherlands, so I was also checking www.bladmineerders.nl. This is a website about all mining flies in the Netherlands. They mention two species: Americina vittata and Americina media. But when I look for the synonyms of Americina vittata, I find:

Chylizosoma vittatum; Parallelomma paridis (Hering, 1923); P. convallariae (Kaltenbach, 1873); P. beckeri Séguy, 1932; P. paucheti Séguy, 1932; P. hostae Hering, 1955; P. sasakawae Hering, 1955; P. albamentum Séguy, 1963.

So: we have a species called Americina vittata synonym with Parallelomma paridis, which is in the key from Ball together with Parallelomma vittatum. I think this is really strange!!

Can somebody clarify this issue for me?Smile
Best wishes, Niels-Jan Dek

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
ry.wiley.com/doi/1

.2008.00422.x/pdf
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).

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