Carnifex,

I see that you found this indoors in January. I am puzzled. Wild doli in Austria I would expect to be hibernating in the winter. Do you have a greenhouse or indoor plants where this may have emerged from the soil?

Kind regards,

Thanks Igor, for the determination.
I would like to identify it further, if possible. Such a large genus, though... Shock


Dear Keith,

I just have normal potted plants, one of which was kept outside in the garden until late autumn.

I caught two specimens, a male and a female, within two days. Unfortunately the female escaped before I could investigate it. Was hoping for more to find, didn't happen.
Do you think the adults were overwintering or there were larvae developing in the soil?

Dear Igor,
both specimens key to species-group IV (femora black; lower postocular setae white).

I noticed that you published quite a lot about this genus, unfortunately most of the articles I have no access to. However, in the "checklist and keys to Dolichopodidae (Diptera) of the Caucasus and East
Mediterranean" both of my flies, male and female, key perfectly to H rusticus:

Male - Calypter with black cilia; Postpedicel twice as long as broad; hind basitarsus shorter than 2nd
Female - Calypter with black cilia; Postpedicel 1,5x longer than broad; hind basitarsus shorter than 2nd

I wonder if you know if there are any Middle European species that, based on these features, can be confused with H rusticus.

Best, Lorin

Dear Keith,

I moved the potted plant into another room, and now the flies appear there. So they might in fact come from the soil.
I found this article (in German) about phenological appearances of Dolichopodidae in Switzerland, and there have been some cases of Hercostomus rusticus in Dezember and February.

Cheers!
