Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Tiny fly on Achillea millefolium
Posted by Juergen Peters on 25-07-2005 17:06
This only 3-4 mm long, slender fly with thick hind femora I photographed yesterday on a meadow here in Ostwestfalen/Germany. Can someone tell me the family or even the genus? Thanks in advance!

Looks like a chloropid to me, but I have no idea about the genus.

not the only genus of the group of similar chloropids with thickened femora?

Thanks to you both! I have found pictures of Meromyza (saltatrix)
that look very much like my fly.
