SW France 2 days ago. Body about 7 mm long.

Again not even sure of the family. Wing veins do not help.

Muscidae. The few Anthomyiidae with 2+4 dorsocentrals are hairier.

Ah ! ok, thank you John, TumbsUp

I have been thinking of Hydrotaea, but the veins R4+5 & M are not getting closer towards the end as it should be for this genus ... and I do not have any alternative. Frown

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
