Hello,
the only Ulidiidae species listed in "LISTA DE ESPECIES SILVESTRES DE CANARIAS Hongos, plantas y animales terrestres 2009" for Canary Islands is Physiphora alceae (Preyssler, 1791). The species should "have black legs except fore tarsus with basitarsomere creamy yellow in basal 3 / 4 , mid- and hind tarsi yellow; all setae black; fore femur postero-ventrally with 5–7 thickened, but rather short setae in apical half."
On a new and old pictures from Fuerteventura basitarsomere of fore tarsus seems to be black. Do these flies belong to another species?

There are other species of Physiphora with black fore tarsi. Kameneva and Korneyev revised the genus in 2016 but the paper is not open access.

I suppose it is Physiphora smaragdina: black tarsi + widespread in Africa + recorded for Spain mainland (see: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=5&thread_id=48169&pid=209025 or https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=5&thread_id=43641&pid=191145

Thank you very much John and Nikita.
Physiphora smaragdina matches much better.
I will move my Fuerteventura photos to this species. It looks like all specimens from Fuerteventura have foretarsi with all tarsomeres black.

I'd better get confirmation from Dr. Korneev to be sure in P. smaragdina

It is.
I'd say, the first record from the Canaries

Thank you both. Smile

First record for the Canaries sounds good. But I'm wondering, why nobody else should have found this not uncommon species. On Fuerteventura I met the first specimen in 2006.

The problem is there were no keys. Either it was overlooked -- or it is an invider.
BTW, we have recorded it in Europe (Granada) quite recently, and also due to "citizen scientists" photoactivity.

128 in the New World as of 2009. Should be around 140 worldwide depending on how you split.
