Which species could be this Minettia with a single pair of spots on abdomen? Following Shatalkin key and disregarding color of palpus, maybe tinctiventris, but, then, shouldn't there be a black spot between the antennae?
(French Riviera, 03-IX-2019, wing length 5,4mm)
Thanks in advance.

Yes, this one is tricky, but I will not say anything definite without the actual specimen...

Thank you, Paul. Following your answer, I tried to collect similar specimens at this place but did not succeed.

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
