Good morning,

this is without doubt the genus Platystoma but is it possible to determine the species as well? Photographed on 21 June 2022, Southern Moravia, Czech republic.

Thank you.

I would think this is P. seminationis, but it’s not easy from photographs - perhaps Val can confirm?

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