Hi everyone,

Here is a Chrysops I find a bit strange: legs are black and it key out on C caecutiens, but I find the abdomen patern closer to those of my C relictus. Have you ever seen specimen like this?

Specimen is from Sweden (Stockholm, 09/08/2019) a marecagous area.

Well spotted and don’t use Central European keys in Stockholm !

Ch. divaricatus.

COmmon in Estonia, so I expect it to be not rare around Stockholm.

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.

11.09.19 13:15
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).

16.07.19 13:31
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
