found on Leucanthemum vulgare in my garden at Marburg, central Germany, on 2013-05-12. Is Tephritis neesii correct? Regards, Ingo

I think yes (but I am not an expert).

There have been lots of these on the Leucanthemum here over the past few weeks.

For Idiohelina, 3 Malloch's papers, Exotic Muscaridae III, XV, and XXXV

Species with mouth parts that appear to be 'similar', like Sargus, do feed on honeydew. I have never seen Hermetia in nature...

18.09.15 17:42
Thanks Paul, some sites report that it don't have functional mouth part, other sites say it feed nectar, some publications say it "probably" feed nectar and it's a pollinator.

18.09.15 11:57
Sounds like it might be. Do sites that 'say not' state that they do feed or don't they mention anything?

14.09.15 20:42
Question: is it true that the Hermetia illucens don't have functional mouth part? Some sites say yes and some other say not. It's a bit confused. Thanks Smile

looks like it! Grrrr.

Fauna Europaea unavailable again!?

28.08.15 22:58
I'm searching a Muscidae pdf for the New Zealand fauna (Idiohelina genus), I hope someone can help me with a link, thanks in advance!
