I have photographed this hymenopteran in this position, Puerto de San Lorenzo, Asturias (NW Spain).
The flower is a Eryngium sp.
Length about 12-14mm.
Any idea of its identity?
Thanks for help!

it's a Nomada sp. male (13 antennal segments), species ID via foto usually impossible (in this case at least for me) in this genus.

Nice pic!

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

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
