I found this female Apolysis near Faliraki on 26_05_2019. Greek and Turkish checklists only list Apolysis fumipennis as occuring in these countries.
Apolysis pusilloides was described relatively recently from Iran and is known from Greece, too, but females of that sp.
has mostly yellowish legs (as does A. sappanosi, described from Hungary.) The fly in the pics has completely dark legs. So I think this should be A. fumipennis. But the name "fumipennis" bothers me a bit,
since the wings of thes specimen are more or less clear.

Can someone help me with this fly?

Thanks for any comment in advance!

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.

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
