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 I thought about Calliopum but my list is outdated and only contains dark species.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,

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

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.

@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
