is this Chrysops divaricatus? Legs are entirely black. I looked it up in the gallery, but i´m not sure if there are similar species around.

Jakob attached the following image:

Thanks a lot!
Yes it is, but in the north east and quite close to the border. The exact locality is 52.845285, 13.856010, the date is 22.6.3019.
Is it an unusual species for germany?

Yes. It is a boreal species, not rare in Sweden and the Baltic States, but clearly rare in Central Europe and possibly disappearing due to climate change.

Interesting record !

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
