According to the shown mating behavior in http://www.dipter...;pid=40982 I think it should be a Meiosimyza as well.
Found on a Urtica leaf in the evening of 2013-08-04 in the Burgwald, Hesse, Germany. Regards, Ingo

Honestly, I cannot see enough detail to say what species of Meiosimyza it is, though do I see a kind of shadow on the end of the longitudinal veins indicating it is rather Tricholauxania praeusta? But, I am not very convinced, because I do not see any other marking on crossveins etc.

Thank you very much. I've gone back to this mating location and have collected two flies. So I hope to get a few photos of them taken by a friend of mine in the next days. I'm just a videographer..
Regards, Ingo

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

29.11.16 13:37
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 Some (modern) authors consider Arctophila no longer valid at genus level.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

22.11.16 23:52
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
