I think this might be a Linnaemya sp. Can anyone confirm this?

The mouth edge isn't projecting enough for Linnaemya ... but it could be Phorocera assimilis (etc). A specimen would be needed to confirm it I think Smile

Doh! Erikas posted while I was writing Grin Nice to know that we agree though Wink

Hi hope so can tell me if this is ok griffes et pelotes - claws and pulvilli Thx

09.05.15 12:04
Thx Stephane, I see by rather than from- no your English is great!

09.05.15 11:53
No, I would understand : "Calypters small, the lower one is projecting over the upper one by 3/4" (my english is probably not the best).

09.05.15 10:47
Thx Stephane p296 Seguy Calypters small, le thoracique saillant des 3/4 the lower is 3/4 the size or length of the upper? is that how you understand it

08.05.15 21:20
I assume the sentence talk about calypters (cuillerons) : it means that the lower (thoracic) one is protruding.

07.05.15 14:11
Can anyone help out with a translation for le thoracique saillant.. (its not thorax!) Thx

01.05.15 07:55
Thanks Tony. Curious all those flies belong to different families but all of them have white face. Maybe that is useful to see inside burrows?

long time not coming here, my best wishes to everyone
