I found this fly in Béziers (Hérault - France). it resembles Anthomyia illocata, the presence of which in Europe does not seem assured to me.

I think it's a Limnophora obsignata (Muscidae)

Hello Eugene, L. obsignata is not described in Gregor et al - so I "stole" it from your https://galerie-i...gnata.html. And I thought the patch (or 2 patches) close to the occiput are not visible on this photo (like some do in the above mentioned collection). 3 dc post are visible but I think before the last row there could be sockets of third, broken bristles?

Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
