If I am right with the genus, the key from HENNIG (1941) leads me directly to Ch. gracilis ("2 Vertikalborsten"Wink, and using this key http://www.dipter...soidea.pdf does not lead to an unambiguos end...

Found in Vienna, May 8th 2018

Thanks, Paul.

I should invest some more time to learn features of diptera families before posting such ID requests... Frown

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.
