Hello!

Is it possible to tell whether this is Empicoris culiciformis or vagabundus (the third German species, E. baerensprungi, is not listed for our region)? Found on October-3 at our house wall (Ostwestfalen/Germany). Length about 5 mm. I had it already in my forum, but got no reply. The posting (in German) with several more pics can be found here:

Thanks in advance!

The UK key (by Peter Kirby) splits off vagabundus simply on length: vagabundus is 6-7.1mm, culiciformis and baerensprungi are 4.1-5.5mm. E. baerensprungi has a tubercle on the mid-line of the rear margin of the pronotum, culiciformis doesn't have this (best seen in side view).

What a lovely insect Grin

Many thanks! Then it must be E. culiciformis, it was really rather small.
Best regards,
Jürgen

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
