Thread subject: :: Empididae ID? (South Korea)--> Empis(Xanthempis) sp.

Probably an undrescribed species. The South Korean (and other Eastern Asian) species were revised here and there is only one species (sesqueta) with median vitta and paramedian short fasciae/spots. However, the shape of the paramedian fasciae/spots is different as is the shape of the genitalia.
