Looks like Madiza glabra (Milichiidae)

Hi Natalija & Tony,

It looks like, but actually is a Chloropidae. The wide frons and relatively large scutellum with short, stout black bristles at the edge point to this. I don't know the genus, but many times I've found this chloropid in a smaple and thought: Hey, Madiza. Only to be disappointed to find it is actually a Chlorpoidae…

Yes, I was too hasty with Madiza - this fly is not "glabra" enough! Presumably this is near Siphonella/Calamoncosis - I'm not sure that it's possible to distinguish them from these photos?

Best wishes from Slovenia,

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.
