Most individuals that day had clean eyes but some had spotted eyes. Did not seem to be only one species. This varies within the species?

You should ask Menno Reemer (author of the key; write a private message). He writes concerning the species: "eyes (of living animals) with dark dots and horizontal line". I have seen Oplodontha just once, and it had very dotted eyes. So I cannot estimate the variability, sorry.

@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
