I think I have this one keyed out to Neodexiopsis using the Manual of the Nearctic Diptera but, with my luck with muscids, it could be a butterfly.

body ~3.5mm, ~5mm to wingtips
I've found many of these flies just sitting on various flat concrete surfaces in a semi-urban/suburban area ā€“ wooded areas, lawns, some ponds and small creeks, etc.

Thanks for the help!

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

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

Iā€™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
