This little fly was on the outside wall this morning despite the cold weather. It looks like a Platypalpus with a green abdomen and a yellowish grey mesonotum. Could it be this species or P. australominutus considering the location in Southwestern France ?

I would be very happy to give a name to this pretty little thing, but haven't got any answer yet. Am I wrong in thinking it is a Platypalpus ?

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
