Hi,

In 10/09/2022, a male Sarcophagidae was photographed and collected by my colleague Savvas Zafeiriou in the island of Lesvos, Greece (photo of the living habitus below and link to the original upload here https://www.inatu...caf56b60f0). After using Povolny & Verves 1997 https://www.zobod...1-0260.pdf, I managed to restrict it to Paramacronychiinae (hind coxae bare and posterior spiracle operculate with one lappet) but can't go much further. If indeed Paramacronychiinae, I can exclude Nyctia (based on color) and Eurychaeta (bare propleuron) but I am not sure for the other characters (especially parafacial chaetotaxy). As such, any help is much appreciated!

Thanks

P.s. Photos of various characters are given below and more can be taken if needed.

Recheck the posterior spiracle. It is a Phyto (Rhinophoridae), with several undescribed species from this region. If you want me to check it out, send me a PM.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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