Still a Diptera novice here, so I want to be sure I know what this is.

I'm using a key to Nearctic Helina, and one of the early couplets is:

"Pra as long as, and usually longer than, anterior notopleural bristle" vs "Pra shorter than anterior notopleural bristle"

What specifically is "Pra"? I'm assuming it refers to setae, but I haven't seen this abbreviation in other references.

Many thanks,
Brad

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
