I observed this Diptera this morning in north of France. I think of a female of Neomyia ? Maybe Neomyia viridescens ?

Cordially maxime

A female Neomyia it is, the shiny green frons is typical. Now it becomes difficult. If there is a pair of presutural acrostichal bristles, it is N. cornicina. If there are no presutural acrostichals, it is N. viridescens. I think there are ps ac, at least in the upper picture there is something visible. So I tend to N. cornicina.

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
