Good morning,

The photos are not of very good quality but I have the individual in the collection and I can take photos of certain criteria if necessary. I posted this individual on but we hesitate between Paykullia and Kirbya.

Personally I thought of Paykullia maculata because the wings are not darkened. Do you think we can determine this individual?

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