Thread subject: Diptera.info :: New Year Doli
Posted by Igor Grichanov on 01-01-2012 18:07
I have met this Doli yesterday on 31 Dec on my dinner plate with a meat dish. I have caught it today on 1 Jan by use of my champagne glass within my kitchen in a small wooden house nr. St.Petersburg. I have grasped my hand camera and snapped the fly within the glass. I am serious despite some drinking. I guess it is a female of Dolichopus plumipes
that has awakened because of very warm December (+5.6 centigrades above norm, i.e. +1.9 monthly average. I shall check identification and the species overwintering later. Nevertheless, the incident is surprising for me and Happy New Year for all Diptera.Info subscribers and good luck.
