excellent suggestion, Tristram. I think that you are correct. look here:

unbelievable. I didn't know Chloropidae could be so interesting.
I have the specimen, so maybe I can find keys to identify it. I know where to find them now. I will try to get some photos of live species.

Thank You!

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.
