Hi,
on a house wall in Vienna I could catch this fly, length about 2mm. Hope an ID is possible, at least family would be great.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

I think Phasia pusilla - hopefully an expert will confirm

Thanks Tony,
trying to take pictures that show ID features, so here are more pics to hopefully ID the species.

I can see no additional parafrontal bristles and the haltere looks yellowish (but could be brown), so I am unsure where it keys out

Yes, the haltere is a bit pale for pusilla, but the orbits don't look like barbifrons. And I don't know whether you have additional species in Austria. Hopefully Theo or someone who knows these flies well will give an opinion...

If you still have the specimen, can you please make a pic of the ovipositor lateral and if possible also "ventral" (= actually dorsal) ?
It looks like pusilla, but there is something fishy going on, possibly.

Ah ! You improved the images of the ovipositor. Very nice !
And it confirms my suspicion on pusilla: definitely female mesnili.

Hairs on gena should all be light coloured.

Thank you so much, Theo! That should make it a new species for the country Smile
The Tschorsnig-key leaves me at the theodori-complex, and I don't get access to further literature. What is the distinguishing feature at the ovipositor? Will have a look at the head again

Cheers, Lorin

Joachim Ziegler wrote a perfect review in Studia Dipterologica, in the 1990’ies.

Exactly:
Ziegler, J. (1994) The species of the Genus Phasia, subgenus Hyalomya R-.D. in central Europe (Diptera, Tachinidae). Studia Dipterologica, 1, 157-180

But as I mentioned above:

So I would be glad to either have a read in that paper or get the ID features regarding P. mesnili Smile

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.

28.08.19 14:29
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!

22.07.19 15:09
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
