evdb pointed me to the Lauxaniidae, but I don't find such short yellowish wings.
More, The ptilinal suture is still rather open.
And what do you think about four ocelli ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't see dorsal preapical bristles on tibiae and I do see something black sticking out of the rear end. I think Tephritoidea.

Thanks. I had overseen the ovipositor.

Lonchaeidae, thinking of Earomyia

According to FE and INPN, there is a single species in France, Earomyia bazini (Séguy, 1932).

I think this is a Dasiops: lunula seems to be with setae, vibrissa present (although visible only on one side). And certainly there are more Earomyia species in France, just they are unrecorded.

Apart from the fact that Jan could be right with his Dasiops (Earomyia and Dasiops are both relatively scarce here and I did not bother to dig up my key, sorry), do not put too much trust on the distribution of those genera in France as given by Faune Europaea.

OK, Paul.
As always, nowadays, Fauna Europaea is only taken as an information source, not as a proof.

It looks like a female Dasiops at this size most probably a female D. latifrons. The French Lonchaeidae were reviewed by Withers & MacGowan (2014) and the most up to date and accurate distribution maps can be found at Lonchaeidae online.

Dasiops latifrons map is at

@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
