Thanks John and Theo!
Would that mean that it's a S. atramentaria then?

According to the key to Palaearctic species, S. atramentaria has "body entirely black, very sparsely microtrichose."

Thank you, John.
The body color seems to rule out S. atramentaria and probably S. umbratica too. Am I right?

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.
