This specimen was observed recently on january at home. For me its appearance is typical of Megaselia genus. But, I am surprised by the enlarged hind femurs. Are you in agreement with me ? Many thanks in advance. Jean-Michel Garel.

Normally Megaselia are not identifiable from pictures but there are a few exceptions. You are lucky, this is one of the exceptions. The smaller pictures show very thick erect setae on the abdomen, characteristic for Megaselia rufipes.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently

21.01.21 08:58
No idea what happened but it is corrected
