Berlin - May 2018

I think that this is Empididae Hilara species. I am seeking confirmation.
Also, anyone know where i can find keys to this genus? there are too many options in Germany.

Thank You for your time.

I found a pdf entitled "A taxonomic revision of the hilara maura group in Europe" by Chvala but there are many more possibilities. Anyone can help?

the terminalia is strange and very dark. I will try to clear it in lactic acid for better photos. I will also examine it to see how to dissect it for appropriate material.

using the following references:
A taxonomic revision of the hilara maura group - Chvala
The Hilara species (Diptera, Empididae) of Switzerland - Chvala

I arrive at Hilara maura, the most common species, especially in May.

Thanks, Paul. I always appreciate a confirmation. I am new to this field and still a bit diffident.

I notice that we don't have this species in the gallery. I'll upload some pics...

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.
