Can anyone make a suggestion about the identity of this Fannia male. It was caught in a malaise trap in an well-planted garden isolated in intensive arable farming in the English Lincolnshire fens in June this year. The wings are heavily shaded in brown.

The thoracic dorsum is strikingly divided into the sub-shining anterior section and the heavily dusted posterior, the scutellum is similarly divided with the tip only dusted.

The abdomen has segments 3+4 with fairly distinct paired spots divided by an interrupted dark central vitta.

The only unusual feature of the legs seemed to be a stout blunt postero-ventral spine standing in a line of similar fine setae.

The lower squama is produced beyond the upper, both dark brown.

I should add that the spine on the 4th picture is on the mid femur

Looks more like an Azelia sp.

Many thanks Roger. Now that i re-assess the alignment of the anal vein area, I see that you are right; it is not Fannia but Azelia zetterstedti. I did think it looked a bit fancy for a Fannia!
