What a beautiful fly!
It really keeps up with the most popular insects like dragonflies or butterflies!

Hi Jorge,

you don't need to persuade me. Wink
I just put myself in "mainstream's" position. Smile

It is really beautiful! It has light blue balancers an the grey stripes on it's thorax appear like a pinstripe suit of a business man. It wears stylish yellow shoes and its wings look like fragile glass. Its abdomen owns all rainbow colors, but the colors are not too saturated. So it is far from being overdressed, cheap or kitschy.
Not to forget the beautiful "rest" of the fly. Wink

Greetings
Nele

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?

30.04.15 13:06
long time not coming here, my best wishes to everyone
