Could someone confirm that this is a pair of M. exiguum? Both taken this month in Kraków.

The female puzzles me, the calypter seems light and the antenna should have yellow, which I don’t see.

I'm adding a couple more photos of the female, maybe they'll help.

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)

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
