Those 'thorns' are just strong costal setae with mostly one longer one just before the subcostal break.
(just google on those terms).
I can't say much more about this fly (important characteristics are not visible) than to confirm it is indeed a female Anthomyiidae.

Thank you. Yes - I've done it now. The file was too large.

no blanks in filename, file size reduced (below 300 k or so).Did you fulfill these criteria ?

I've repeatedly tried to upload a photo with my thread but nothing is showing. I can't see that I've done anything wrong. Can someone please assist?

I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
