I found the Tabanidae (about 18 mm) on 18 May 2018 in northeast of Bavaria/ Germany.
What genus is it? Is more possible?
Best regards

It is the female of Hybomitra lundbecki or tropica.
Colour of antenna suggests tropica, dark notopleural lobe suggests lundbecki.

So there is something rotten...

Notopleural lobe is shaded, maybe yellow ?
Any more pictures available ?

Same result. Contradictory trpica / lundbecki.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@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
