this 2 - 3 mm fly was found on May 29 in our backyard in Hannover. We have got Tanaceti (not flowering yet) and Leucanthemum (flowering) in our garden within 1 m distance to the fly.
Would Ozirhincus tanaceti be a possibility?

Many thanks for an answer!

It is at least close to Ozirhincus. O. tanaceti is now a junior synonym of O. longicollis.

Thanks a lot, John!
As a non-expert I feel happy about the right track.

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

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).

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
