Hello everyone !

I pictured this specimen in Belgium on 2019-05-18 in my garden.

Using Tschornig kIs it a female or a male ???

To make the difference between species, Tschornig speaks of "4th Wing edge section" ... does he speak of R4 ???

Thank you for comments and / or ID !!!


PS I have only 2 pictures ...

In this context I would Flügelrand as costa. See figure 118 for the sections of the costa.

Tschorsnig wrote in German, yiurs is the translation by Chris Raper.

This is a male with strong apical scutellars, so definitief NOT Phorocera.

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
