Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Haematopota pseudolusitanica?

Hi Theo, thank you for your input.
In the key of Fauna Iberica H. pseudolusitanica is separated from H. crassicornis/ocelligera/eugeniae by the colour of femora and by the presence of greyish spots on tergite 2 (absent in the other species). It was especially because of this last feature that I thought of H. pseudolusitanica.
If H. pseudolusitanica is discarded, I indeed arrive to H. ocelligera, since scape is without greyish dust in H. crassicornis and its shape is different in H. eugeniae.
