Northern Germany, Hamburg-Rissen, Schnaakenmoor, way between mixed forest (with birch, pine, ash, oaks, alder buckthorn) and an area of moor, at a leaf of rowan, 18th of May 2018, Outsidephoto: kuv. To me it looks like S. inquitana, female, in the Diptera Gallery. Please help to get the ID.

Here is an enlargement of the first picture, as I hope there is a little make out the long hair of the arista and bristle(s) at the hind femora (as written in the key of Stuart Ball).

This one is a much better S. inquinata than the other in https://diptera.i...d_id=88132. It is very similar to my female in https://www.orion...p;Nr=18960 that I dared to name S. inquinata. So we should not be too wrong...

Thank you. Yes - I've done it now. The file was too large.

no blanks in filename, file size reduced (below 300 k or so).Did you fulfill these criteria ?

I've repeatedly tried to upload a photo with my thread but nothing is showing. I can't see that I've done anything wrong. Can someone please assist?

I might add that this is a great resource and I am really thankful for all the members help.

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.
