Thread subject: :: Tephritidae, Campiglossa ? -> C. misella

Posted by Axel D on 21-05-2022 23:51


Yesterday, I found this fly in a (wet ?) meadow. I believed first it was a Tephritis but after looking for the species I think it is closer to Campiglossa, a genus I didn't know before. I'm not sure for the species but I think it is close to C. misella. Do you agree ? The host plant must be present and I also found Oxyna parietina not far away (there are Artemisia plants but I don't know which species).

Yes, looks good for Campiglossa misella.

Thank you Ben. A new genus and a new species for me.
