I have very little experience with Phoridae. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you Paul. I understand that Megaselia is hard to identify but I'll give it a try. Of course it's not possible after the rather low quality picture of the genitalia.

Even with a high quality picture I would be hesitant. Wink Most species in Disney's key(s) are illustrated in left view (some both) and from dissected genitalia on microscope slide. I feel that in some species that may have influenced the way the genitalia are shown (some distortion because of pressure of the cover glass). And keep in mind: There are many additions to Disney's British key and 'continental species' that will not be included anyway.
This specimen looks similar to numerous specimens I have from the ENCI Malaise trap and that I have not yet identified (and probably will not do myself either).

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

15.09.19 20:41
Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

11.09.19 13:15
Iā€™m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

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).

16.07.19 13:31
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
