Hi!

This adult fly (about 1mm long) eclosed from (dozens of) larvae infecting the abdomen of a carpenter ant queen collected (live) in Switzerland.
I'm not a dipterist, so even a family ID (Phoridae?) would help.

Sorry for poor image quality and angle, I'm trying to keep the adults alive in the hope they will mate and infect new ants in the lab.
Any advice on how to maintain these flies would also be very welcome.

Thanks!

When you have some dead specimens, please, send them to me for proper ID (https://diptera.i...page_id=32).

@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
