I think is is Cheilosia sp. male, but it's not much help, is it? Smile

Oh! Shock

I was thinking about some species in tribe Pipizini (after checking the venation) but I'm unfamiliar with these species. :-( I'd rule out Cheilosia, but thanks anyway for having a look and giving your oppinion, Henrik. Smile

Edit: I'm going to be "brave" and propose genus Pipizella, risking to say something silly. Smile

No, you're not silly, this is indeed a male Pipizella. But without specimen not to be identified to species.....

OK, Gerard, I'll settle for Pipizella then. Smile At least now I have an idea of what a Pipizella looks like. Wink

Loads of thanks!!

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

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)

17.07.19 19:37
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
