Hello together,

I found this fly on 21. April 2021 in Southwest Germany, Baden-W├╝rttemberg on a dry meadow. Is ist Systoechus ctenopterus?

Greetings Siggi

Hi Siggi, I fear it is not: vein R-M is not close to the base of the discal cell. So it should be one of these:
Bombylius cinerascens, minor or posticus
Do you have more photos of the specimen? Lateral? We need to see the femora as well as a side of the thorax.

Hi Eric,

I'm sorry, but I only have this one picture. Thank you for your detailed explanation. Then I will take the picture under Bombylius sp. classify.

Greetings, Siggi

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
