P
Palaearctic

palpi
palpus (synonym)
palpus
Plural: palpi. One- to five-segmented, auxillary mouthparts lateral of the functional mouthparts.
paramedian
On each side of the middle but not in the middle; lateral of a median strip.
parasitoid
An organism that spends a significant portion of its life history attached to or within a single host organism which it ultimately kills (and often consumes) in the process. Thus they are similar to typical parasites except in the fate of the host. In a typical parasitic relationship, the parasite and host live side by side without lethal damage to the host.

paratype
From the ICZN: 'Each specimen of a type series other than the holotype.'
pd
posterodorsal (synonym)
Pd

petiole
Literally: stalk. Can be used to indicate the common stem of two veins (basal part before fork) or the vein that is formed when two veins running towards the wing margin merge, for example R4+5 and M1+2 in some families of the Calyptrata.
phoresy
Using a second organism for transportation (like 'hitching a ride'). The adjective is phoretic. For example, the phoretic sphaerocerid fly Norrbomia frigipennis mates on scarabid dung beetles, follows them underground, and lays eggs in the collected dung.
phoretic
Adjective of phoresy.
phytophageous
phytophagous (synonym)
phytophagous
Feeding on plant tissue.

pollination
The process where flowering plants are fertilised by the transfer of male pollen to the female stigma by animals, air or water currents. Diptera are very significant pollinators, often more so than Hymenoptera, but they are often named, only to family, incorrectly, or not at all.

pollinosity
Powdery, scaley surface covering that may cover enitire surfaces or form patterns like stripes or bands across most parts of the body. The extent of covering or shape of patterns can be an important disgnostic feature.
polyphageous
polyphagous (synonym)
polyphagous
Feeding on a range of food sources, for example, Diptera with an unspecialised diet (omnivorous). Polyphagous may be used to describe an herbivorous insect that feeds on a broad range of plant species, a predator that feeds on many species of prey, a parasite that feeds on a broad range of host species, or a species that has larvae that feed on different kinds of organic matter, both animal and plant, for example.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
