Hi all,
I pictured this specimen in my garden on 2024-04-13 in Belgium and could measure it : 9,25mm. It's a female.
On a french forum I found a similar habitus identified here by Theo Zeegers.

But is it the same species ???

Is it possible to ID ???
Thank you !!!

The sharp bend in vein M excludes tribe Blondeliini, to which Vibrissina belongs. It appears to have a strong first post-sutural supra alar bristle, ruling out tribe Exoristini with similar wing veins. If it has four post-sutural supra alar bristles then the Lypha group is a possibility.

I'd it is a candidate Paratryphera, but impossible to be sure from this angle.
Definitely not Vibrissina nor any other Blondeliini, as pointed out by John.

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
