Hello everybody,

Found on very ripe cherries in a garden in the suburbs of Paris, this pupa (3 mm long) looks like another one that I noticed on a forum which eventually gave birth to an imago Drosophila suzukii. Is the shape of this pupa characteristic of this species? or do other species have the same form?

I did collect the pupa but, so far, nothing has emerged Sad

Thank you

It is consistent with the pupa of that species, as is, of course, the location where it was found.

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
