Dear you all,

I just discovered this quite interresting paper "Review of the scolopaceus-group of Rhagio Fabricius 1775 with the description of a new species from the Iberian Peninsula (Diptera: Rhagionidae)"
So I took interrest to look at my specimens previously identified as R scolopaceus.

I have specimens from northern France with typical R scolopaceus'antennas, and I have specimens from Bretagne and central France with antennas like the picture following.
This is a male, last antennal segment is quite short, like R atlanticus, but arista is strongly concave, like R scolopaceus.
What to you think?
First sternite is strongly hairy.

Many thanks,

Yes, nice article, isn’t it ?

In atlanticus male, eyes are dichoptic. Maybe the antenna is simewhat variable, but this looks good for scolopaceus to me.

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