unfortunately, this pretty little fly was not very patient, so I got only a few pictures of it. It has a distinct golden tinge on the upper part of the body and I think it might belong to the Dolichopodidae family. Is it possible to determine genus or species from the image?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), leaf, 23.05.2024, app. 5 mm (maybe a little bit more or less)

Greetings, Uli

Dolichopus ungulatus, the only common species with more than one preapical bristle on each hind femur.

Hi John,

thank you for the identification. Your eyes are pretty good, I had to enlarge the region to see what you mean.

Greetings, Uli

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
