While I was on a break in Cults, Aberdeen recently I took 4 [crap] photos of a fly I spotted in the undergrowth while photographing another fly. Having lightened the pics a bit, I reckon it must be a Lophosia fasciata which doesn't appear anywhere in Scotland on the NBN Atlas.

Anyone confirm the ID?

Hi Roger,
I saw the same fly yesterday and got better pics Pfft. With those antennae, I think there is no alternative to Lophosia fasciata, at least not in Tschorsnig & Herting 1994 (https://www.zobod...1-0170.pdf). I post my pictures in a separate thread.
Best wishes, Sundew

You call those* Pfft better Pfft pics Sundew? Straight to the recycle bin if they were taken by me [out of focus /reflections etc]...Pfft
Mine were "record shots" of a fly which turned out to be "not seen in Scotland before"!

But seriously, thanks for the confirmation Sundew, much appreciated and I promise not to post "crap" photos again, well... till next time! Smile

Regards

Roger

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
