Hi,

I keyed this specimen to Estheria microcera, but I'm not sure. I read that this species has 3+4 DC, but I only count 3+3 DC.

I need to check the literature, but why not cristata ?

Indeed it was in the step that separates E. cristata from the other species that my doubts arouse. According to the key E. cristata has 4 bristles on the postpronotum, with the three strongest arranged in a more or less straight line. In my specimen I count 5 bristles, and I'm not sure if I should consider that the strongest are in a straight line or not, it seems somewhat intermediate. But because of the 5 bristles on the postpronotum I continued in the key and reached E. microcera.

I see your point. It is, indeed, not cristata.
From what I can see, I agree with microcera.

@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
