Paragus bicolor group. There are several very similar species (bicolor, romanicus, and still unnamed spp.) in the Mediterranean that are not covered well in the literature and are identifiable by the male genitalia only.

The smaller creature is indeed a Thysanoptera, but I do not think anyone would hazard to put a genus name on it.

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
