I keyed this female Leucostoma to L. anthracinum. Is it possible to confirm my ID?

According to the Central European key this would be Leucostoma anthracinum.

The world checklist of Tachinidae shows another European species not in the key, L. aterrimum, which also has a long abdomen. I don't know how to separate them, or if they are the same species.

Thank you John. I also don't have that species in my keys and it is not mentioned in Fauna Europaea. Maybe it's a recent introduction in Europe?

hmm it had already been mentioned in in the 'Catalogue of Palearctic Tachinidae' by Herting under L. simplex.

The name Leucostoma aterrimum as used in America probably refers to the same species that Europeans call Leucostoma anthracinum. Sorting out the names will require examination of types.

Thank you. I'll leave it as Leucostoma anthracinum. Smile

L. anthracinum IS mentioned as valid species in Herting’s catalogue, and a key is given by Tschorsnig & Herting, of which a (free) translation can be found at Chris Rapers website.

In his revision of American Leucostoma Reinhard (1956) recognized a holarctic species L. aterrimum with elongated female abdomen. North Americans continue to use this name. As far as can be determined from literature, this is the same species that Tschorsnig and Herting call L. anthracinum. Somebody is using the wrong name, but we can't figure out who without a visit to Paris to examine the type of Musca aterrima.

Possibly everybody is using the wrong name, if Old and New World species are different and aterrima is a senior synonym of anthracinum.

Too many flies, not enough taxonomists.

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

15.09.19 20:41
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!

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
