Rather little fly ( c.a 5mm ) with deeply black scutellum. I apologize for the poor picture. Central Poland 11.06

I'd suggest Azelia (Muscidae)

The mid leg is strongly modified (tubercle on tibia, femur swollen with strong hairs) : it is more likely a male Fannia.

Looks like some dark spots on the abdomen - are these characteristic of Fannia?

Yes, I'd overlooked the legs - not quite right for Azelia! awkward

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.

11.09.19 13:15
I’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
