Hi,
I guess this is either Otitis guttata or O. centralis. Can the fly be IDed? April, Vienna.

All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

I'd say Otites centralis, but prefer to study genitalia in every case of centralis/guttata

It is a female but I have the specimen. Do you need a certain feature to confirm the initial suggestion?

In fact, both occur there in Hungary, Austria, and neighbouring countries, differing by the wing pattern slightly (and this may overlap), but I have no experience enough to ID with 100% certainty (we have only one of them here and rarely occurring). Male surstyli and female spermathecae are the only solid characters, but not visible on photos.

I did a literature search but I couldn't find any access to descriptions on how to distinguish the two species. Do you have any publications? Would be a new species to the state of Vienna

Thanks Val, that supports indeed O. centralis. I will also measure the wing (although there is a typo in the description: 2,8mm - 1,0 mm doesn't make sense...)
