Hi,

I found this wingless fly in Barcelos, Portugal on the 2nd of March 2008. Is it possible to tell something about it?

I hope you can send it to me: It is a wingless hybotid and I'd be very happy to add it to my collection. Wink

Hi,

This is Tachydromia, probably an undescribed species (I will check once again). Unfortunately, it is a female. Did you collect only a single specimen?
Currently, Patrick Grootaert and me prepare a world revision of this genus. There have been found a few wingless species of Tachydromia.
All the best,Smile

Unfortunetly I only have oneSad. This is a very small fly and I think it will be very difficult to find another one, but I will try.

No, I found it alive but I only had the opportunity to photograph it now, and meanwhile it died.

Today I went to Barcelos, and I found more Tachydromia Smile

I collected 4 specimens that are in the four photos below. Is there a male among them (I don't know how to separate both sexes)?
On the first photo we can see two lengthy structures on the thorax that are absent on the other specimens. What are those?

Those 'were' the 'wings'. I hope you collected enough of them to serve us all? Wink

Evidently the male has vestigial wings, while the female has no wings at all.
Great photos of a new species. Well done Rui! Cool

Thank you very much Paul, Tony and JorgeSmile.

It seems that this species is common in Barcelos because I didn't have any difficulty finding the specimens. So, don't worry Paul, there is enough specimens for all of you Wink.

Today I saw many more of them. Once I had six of them in my field of visionShock.

I also saw one male feeding on a little dipteran. Does someone have an idea of what could the prey be?

The prey is probably a sciarid.

Great find! "Tachydromia ruii" Smile

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

11.09.19 13:15
I’m hoping someone can identify the phoridae maggot or pupae I just uploaded.

28.08.19 14:29
Rafael p is legs and f1 is fore femur

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

22.07.19 15:09
Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
