Here are some Eccoptomera's I saw in December and Januari in Southern Limburg, NL.
I don't see many differences, but my experience is very limited.
The first and second image are from the same fly.

I think I see on the 2nd tibia 2 strong pre-apical bristles: then E. pallescens (Mg.) Right Andrzej?

Thanks Ruud,

In older threads a saw the pre-apical bristles remarks, but I wasn't sure if that is enough to call it E. pallescens.

hmm,
it should be E. pallescens but really a curious coloured female ! It's better to write E. cf. pallescens Smile

Thanks a lot Andrzej,

I saw seven of them at different locations and all were coloured like that.

Hello, Sericomyia-Arctoph
ila... this synonymy is based on Nearctic material only. Although very respected authors, I think it is not wise to follow this synonymy without studying palearctic Arctophila

Approaching 2/3s, which I consider a very good result already. But there is room for improvement. Wink

28.11.16 17:26
so, Paul, almost 50% of the costs is not covered yet.

28.11.16 13:40
Thanks Theo! So it "should" be Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis.

28.11.16 11:45
It is a matter of opinion. Some (modern) authors consider Arctophila no longer valid at genus level.

25.11.16 07:51
Hello! Can someone please tell me what's the actual name for Arctophila bombiforme? There are: Sericomyia (Arctophila) bombiformis, Sericomyia bombiformis and Arctophila bombiforme. Thanks Smile

Paul I submitted another (better) photo of Madiza pachymera for the gallery

21.11.16 11:49
Thanks Paul

21.11.16 10:36
FYI: The name can also refer to the Dipteran family Clusiidae, named after the genus Heteroneura (= Clusiodes).

Thanks John that's looks good
