Hello,

I photographed these flies in the Torre del Cerrano Marine Protected Area (TE), Italy on March 28th 2021. I think they are Ephydridae, but is it possible to identify their genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Compare Hecamede and Diclasiopa.

Thank you John! What are the differences between these two genera?

According to comments here, one difference is the position of the posterior notopleural bristle. The first photo shows it well above the anterior notopleural bristle, suggesting Hecamede.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
