I'm totally lost with the Hybomitra species, I really need help!

Here is a female I caught in central sweden, in marecagous area (Really interresting species of Tipulids)

I belive the subcallus is partly shiny because it has been scrubed. I belive the frons is wide, so that would make it H tropica.
Notopleural is brown yellow, but only a little bit diferencied from the mesonotum color.
Pilosity on the red part of the abdomen is exclusively yeallow.

It is a pretty dark confiformis (recently stat, revived by me).
Lower callus is wrinkled, which is never seen in montana-group (including tropica)
Yes, the black on the subcallus is likely due to rubbing, but the brown in the center is not. The shape is typical for confiformis (though it can be much more extended).
That said, the dark median vitta on tergites is unusually broad.

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.

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
