Hi,

what family does this specimen belong to?
It has a plumose antenna, but I don't dare to say if its ending is forked or not. Doesn't look like Drosophilidae to me, so I give it a try with Periscelidae.
Length 2,5mm, found in Vienna on May 22nd.

Found the walking behaviour interesting: instead of moving forward, most of the time it walked sideways in some sort of 'gliding' movement.

Best,
Lorin

Hello Carnifex,

This is a Stenomicridae! Judging on the black bands on the hind femora and tibia Stenomicra soniae.
Did you collect the specimen? And can you tell something about the habitat and/or plant you caught it in/on?

Kind regards,

Ectemnius

I added another picture, where the milky wing veins and maybe also the white base can be seen. St. soniae confirmed?

I still have the specimen, can provide it if of interest. Habitat info will follow

Best,
Lorin

Hi Carnifex,

Yes, it is Stenomicra soniae. And yes, I would be interested in the specimen! Grin I'll send you a pm.

Greetings,

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.
