This Cecidomyiidae was collected 14 May near Wolphaartsdijk, the Netherlands. I don't have literature for Cecidomyiidae, so I hope someone can help me with the ID. It has some silvery scales behind the eyes, on the legs and abdomen. Thanks!

Based on the wing, tribe Lasiopterini is most likely. It used to have a lot more scales.

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.
