Thread subject: :: [NL] Phoridae ID? -> Megaselia cf. rufipes

Thank you Tony Irwin and Paul Beuk! It saddens me to say that I did not keep this specimen :|

There seem to be some bristles on the back side of the abdomen, but it has been wet (tried to dry it) so that might be the cause of the bristles being down:

It was my first catch ever, I will make sure to keep it in the future!


Some remaining questions:

1. Are there any good resources for Phoridae? As I am pretty new to them.
2. @Paul Beuk, what would be the best action to preserve and/or sent something like this (for future cases)
