Please let me show you a series of yellow Drosophila species. I hope we can put them in a group at least.
The next pictures were taken in a beech forest in southern Brandenburg on 30th September. Numerous animals were on the underside of a large bracket fungus. They had clear wings, and only the females' abdomen tips were dark.
Any suggestions?
Thanks, Sundew

Wow - those males are very "obese"... Frown So they match the females of thread (5), all being H. confusa. Good to know! They seem to be quite frequent.
Many thanks, dear Jan

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
