Thread subject: :: Empis - not scutellata but dimidiata

Posted by Sundew on 17-06-2021 13:24

According to the partly yellow antennae and the short first antennal segment I consider this male Empis scutellata. As far as I know there is no other member of subgenus Xanthempis that has such antennae. Seen in southwestern Germany (50 km west of Stuttgart) on 12th June.
Thanks for comments, Sundew
