3 of the 4 jumping spiders I collected (South Africa) were parasitized by flies like this one. There were no visible parasites on the spiders when I found them. When I opened the containers two days later the only thing in each container was a spider exoskeleton and a larva. The flies emerged two weeks later. Could this be Acroceridae?

Thank you John.Smile I've just discovered the Manual of Afrotropical Diptera online Grin and after comparing the wing veins, I also think Ogcodes.

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
