Thecophora propinqua. The hind femur is at least 1/5 yellow in other species. This is not a group I pay much attention to, but if that projection at the hind end of the female is the genital plate is also confirms species:"This species is characterized by the long female genital plate, the prominence of white or yellowish hairs on the abdomen of typical males, the nearly or entirely black hind femur, and the small size." http://chla.libra...m=frameset

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
