From what I can see, B. varicolor seems correct, ...but I can't rule out B. trapezina a very similar species.
The differents only can be made by the shape of the cercal plate (more in a triangle shape) and the differents in the gonites.
B. varicolor also is a more common species.

I can see the shape of the cercal plate, but difficult to show it in photos.
It's Botanophila varicolor.
Thank you Johanna

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
