I found her today ( 14.04 ) in central Poland on Piptoporus betulinus. My first idea - Leucophenga maculata. But i was wrong, I suppose. Could it be Mycodrosophila species?

Hello rafalk,

Yes it is! Nice find! The typical colouration and the black spot at the subcotal break are diagnostic. Mycodrosophila poecilogastra (Loew, 1874). The second Polish record and only recently found in Poland. Seems the species is recently expanding in Europe. for the paper see:

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.
