Berlin - June 2018 - 4mm female

Hello everyone,

I don't work much with Dolicho, so i am not sure if my id is correct. I tried to key it several times but it is difficult to follow the keys. I think a male is easier. Anyway, could someone confirm this id or suggest something better? or should this be Sciapus sp without a specimen?

Thank you,

Thank you very much, Sir Igor.

I forgot that you are a member here. I have your keys and i remember now that you have a very nice website for Dolichopodidae. I'll have to find the bookmark and start using it more often.

Best wishes,

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.
