In the past, this specimen was identified as Dexiosoma caninum. But recently, the topic was bumped by somebody thinking it should be Dexia vacua.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance.

I agree that the abdominal pattern stronglly suggests fmale Dexia vacua. Rare species !

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.

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
