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.

Yes that looks close. But what about e.g. L. flavipes - very similar appearance

You are right.
Limonia flavipes is quite similar and it is difficult to distinguish between flavipes and hercegovinae.
I used Peeters and Oosterbroek key:

https://ccw.natur..._2014c.pdf

This point:

The femur of hercegovinae has one dark ring.
The femus of flavipes with faint dark ring.

In this photo there is first hercegovinae then flavipes and then Vienna specimen.
I think there is one dark ring also in Vienna specimen.
But not 100% sure.

Thanks Esko,
I went through my shots in I think the leg ring is right for L.h., if the published discrimination is a reliable feature.

@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
