Berlin - July 2018 - 4mm

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with this one. For one thing, the eyes are striped. Another problem is the lack of spots on the abdomen. I really don't know where this one belongs. I count 8 irregular rows of ac hairs. I think it is Lauxaniidae. The darkened abdomen is strange. Some bristles seem to be missing. Any suggestions?

Best wishes,

Hello and Thank you, Paul.

I should've checked the gallery. I thought about Calliopum but my list is outdated and only contains dark species. I didn't know it was formerly Sapromyza either, so i didn't try to key it. My apologies. I should've figured this out myself.

Best wishes,

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

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.
