I got a nice sequence of photos of a Phoridae fly trying to lay eggs on Bombus and other type of bees.

Trying to thin down the identification to Genus or species level if possible.

Location: South Brazil near Uruguay.

Thanks in advance.

Wow, thanks a lot Paul and mr. Brown.

I found a recent article about the species. (they have images for the adult forms)

I'll upload one of these pics to the gallery as well. I think a cropped version of the flying one is the best but I'm open to suggestions.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
