Hello,

can at least the genus be determined? Ca. 7-8 mm, doing "gymnastics" on an Alliaria petiolata plant on a fallow near a small creek (northwest Germany).

Hello John,

thanks! There were many Helina evecta around recently. I already thought it could be one of them.

Hello Jürgen,

I agree with evecta for various reasons but it is difficult to put a species level id to such a dirty fly. We could be surprised to find it is annosa or something else. I've learned to be more cautious these days. I have no problem with Helina cf evecta. My initial thoughts were evecta based solely upon the wings, hairy eyes and abdomen.

Also: i often view the spider forum to see what people are finding. I noticed your post. The Theridiidae spider is not Sardinidion blackwalli. I can post a photo of Sardinidion blackwalli if you want to see it along with pedipalp. Anyway, i agree with Theridion as a possibility.

no problem. H. evecta is an abundant fly here. There's no need to base a record on such an individual.

Yes. I hoped to get some new opinions, what it could be, before I changed the subject line, but there are none yet.

I can post a photo of Sardinidion blackwalli if you want to see it along with pedipalp.

Always nice to see an interesting spider. Smile

Anyway, i agree with Theridion as a possibility.

Thanks. There's often Theridion cf. melanurum here at the house, but mostly I only find females.
Best regards,
Jürgen

Hello Jürgen,

I forgot to tell you that I found Helina sp that looks very similar to one of your posts. Please allow me time to analyze the genitalia for an id. If the fly matches yours, then i will update your post with a name.

Meantime, here is a photo of Sardinidion blackwalli from a few days ago. The pedipalp is much different than the one in your photo. From a lateral view, you should see a strong curve. The curve isn't present in your photos. I will try to look at your photos more when i have some free time. Unless someone beats me to it.

please let me know if you wish to see larger photos.

thanks a lot.

Yes, also Tobias Bauer had posted a link to S. blackwalli, which shows these massive pedipalps: http://arachno.pi...blackwalli

please let me know if you wish to see larger photos.


I'm afraid this becomes a little off topic here... awkward
Best regards,
Jürgen
