I'm not sure, and the Photos are not the best. In there were also a possible meaning Physophora alceae

The fly was ca. 4 mm small under a leaf of Topinambur on October 13. in Frankfurt /M - Central Germany.

Interesting are the red/orange eyes and also the first pair of black legs.

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.
