This is not a good photo, but it is the only one I have of this subject. It was taken near Extrapieraz, Val d'Aosta, western Italian Alps in July, 1976. length should be near 10 mm.

A Platypalpus. We have seen more specimens of this huge genus op diptera.info today. Impossible to say which species.

Then it is Hybotidae and not Empididae. Indeed I didn't find any Empididae with such swollen femurs. Besides, probably I overestimated its length. Regarding the species, I am perfectly aware that even with much better photos it is not so easy to be able to determine it. Thanks a lot.

Thank very much Paul it is very helpful to know these words

03.06.16 16:52
Hinterleib -> abdomen; Ring -> Segment, because strictly speaking it is the tergite and sternite that form the ring.

Another couple of old words which I would be grateful for help on Hinterleib narrow, light grey with a pair of small rounded spots on Ring 2 and 3, 4th Ring ungefleckt Hinterleib- ? Ring - terga?

23.05.16 12:37
in fact I prefer Schwinger to halteren

23.05.16 12:37
Thx very much Paul

23.05.16 09:12
Yup, Schwinger is halter, a yellow halter in this case. Smile

21.05.16 12:32
Can anyone help out with the German word Schwinger gelb - is this an old word for Haltere?
