Hello,

Could it be Xanthochlorus tenellus ?
In Switzerland there is only another species, X. ornatus, but that one should have a mostly dark mesotonum (according to Igor Grichanov) whereas the one of my fly is mostly yellow like the rest of its body.
What do you think ? Thank you for your help !

It is X. tenellus Wied. female.

Here is the data on the species from Switzerland:

Xanthochlorus ornatus (Haliday, 1832) GR, TI Keiser 1947: 177, Rampazzi 2002: 94
Xanthochlorus tenellus (Wiedemann, 1817) AG, GE, NE, TI Meier & Sauter 1989: 238, Rampazzi 2002: 94, Chandler & Negrobov 2008: 38, Naglis 2010a: 180

Wunderbar, danke schön Stefan ! (My German is terrible but this at least I can say...)

So yes thank you very much for the confirmation and the detailed info about the genus in our country !
But I'm not sure how to interpret this notation, does it say for instance that you (Naglis) have collected 180 specimens of X. tenellus in 2010 in Ticino ?

Dear Caillou,

The references give the page number of the publications.

Oh... as you can see I'm not familiar with this level of entomology so I sometimes ask silly questions... sorry and thank you for having answered it anyway !

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them
