Hi,

Any idea?

Hi FRV,

A male Acartophthalmus nigrinus of the family Acartophthalmidae. Four species and one genus in the entire family. Three species in Europe, where two are quite common. A. bicolor in summer on carcasses of mammals in shaded forests. A. nigrinus in autumn on rotting mushrooms in shaded forests. The third European species, A. pusio, is very rare and to my knlowedge has a boreo-montane distribution.
Btw, a very nice photo!

Kind regards,

Ectemnius

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.
