I presume an anthomyiid, just over 2 mm. long. Malaise trap near Maastricht, NL, 6-20.iv.2018.

There were four specimens so far (did not yet finish sorting the sample), all very small and rather palish compared with the 'usual' Anthomyiidae that were there in abundance. Especially the lower part of the head struck me as very light.

Sorry for the poor quality of the picture.

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
