Some people gave me specimen from Pays de la Loire in central France, and I would like another opinion on this one.
Is the dot on the scutellum marqued enought to be a H scutellata or is it H bigoti?
I beleave it is H scutellata, but another view would be nice Smile

My pictures of the first antenal segment are not great, so here is the description: No apical constriction in apical view, on upper view, apical 1/4 s shiny.

Definitely scutellata, I’d say. Scutellata always has the middle tibia pink, as in bigoti.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

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)

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
