I found some pictures of a clogmia albipunctata in the diptera galery. They seem to me very similar to the one I shot. (Found n our bathroom) south netherlands.
I'm advised to leave it under Psychodidae spec. Can you confirm this.

For once I'm going to stick my neck out: this certainly has the feel of Clogmia, and the antennae look right (the bathroom is also rather diagnostic). So, yes, I think this is correct.

Interestingly, Cogmia albipunctata is not in the 2002 Dutch checklist, prepared by Rüdiger Wagner and Paul Beuk. This is surprising if it is indeed such an ubiquitous bathroom fly.
Wagner & Beuk (2002) mention C. rothschildi as the only Clogmia, and the recent Dutch species register mentions a second species tristis, but not albipunctata.

Then Fauna Europaea mentions Clogmia albipunctat-us, i.e with masculine ending, absent from the Netherlands, but recorded from i.a. France and Germany.

In short, this may be a new species record for the Dutch fauna?!

It is not on the Hungarian list either, yet it is one of the most commonly seen species here. I am fairly sure that it occurs everywhere in the world. There are very few specialists for Psychodidae, and few people send samples for them from toilets. This species does not seem to live in these countries in the wild, I do not exactly know where the species originates from.

However, I do not know the other Clogmia sp. C. albipunctata or -us was confirmed for my images both by Rudiger and a Japanese specialist.

Clogmia albipunctata (correct spelling) is a container-habitat breeder, which has taken to life around man with brio. It is probably tropical in origin (although no-one knows where its epicentre is) and is present in many more countries than Fauna Europaea records. About the only country I am certain that it is absent from is Great Britain. Current thinking (mine included) would not place either rothschildi or tristis in Clogmia, although they do breed in rot-holes (seemingly exclusively) which albipunctata probably will also. But toilets are commoner...

As I understand, the position of the wings could be of importance for determination. Therefor this frontview (underexposed-sorry)

This flatwing I spottet on an leaf near forrestcreek. The nearby field was fresch manured. I couldn't take a proper picture (didn't carry a good lens-sorry) and I wasn't able to catch it but I think it is the same spec.

Eddy, I cannot confirm that your species is C. albipunctata. But it is certainly within Telmatoscopini/Pericomini.

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
