Hi all,
any advice on this fly, sampled last july in NW-France in coastal marram grass (Ammophila arenaria). The Oosterbroek key brings me to Heleomyzidae (but I am pretty unexperienced when it comes to the less popular fly families).

Head.
Excuses for the low quality pics, it's as good as it gets with the material I have available... If any other views are necessary, just give a shout!
Thanks!

Aparently I took the wrong answer in the key when asked if a pre-apical bristle was present on the middle tibia. I answered yes but should have taken no to get to Sciomyzidae. I guess I thought where the red line is, was the pre-apical bristle?

OK, ignore my previous post. I was wrong a few steps before with the bristles on the mouth corner. Frown
Let's say I'm gaining experience CoolGrin

I´d like to communicate with Jan Maca, who is a member here, but I can´t find any e-mail address. Could anyone help?

Thank you. Yes - I've done it now. The file was too large.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink
