It's a pity ovipositor is not visible - that could help. On the other hand, abdomen seems to have bands of different colours, so this might be T. annulata.

here a photo showing the ovopositor. Not a good one but might help to confirm annulata..

Yes, this confirms T. annulata Wink
Paqui is right about this species being the only trichocerid with published record in Portugal so far. It was earlier found in February 1999, in Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela and that record was published in: CARLES-TOLRÁ M. 2001. Algunos dípteros nuevos para Portugal (Insecta, Diptera). Zool. baetica, 12: 91-100.
So Jorge, you have the second finding of Trichocera from Portugal as far as I know Smile

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
