Hello!

Is it possible to tell whether this is Empicoris culiciformis or vagabundus (the third German species, E. baerensprungi, is not listed for our region)? Found on October-3 at our house wall (Ostwestfalen/Germany). Length about 5 mm. I had it already in my forum, but got no reply. The posting (in German) with several more pics can be found here:

Thanks in advance!

The UK key (by Peter Kirby) splits off vagabundus simply on length: vagabundus is 6-7.1mm, culiciformis and baerensprungi are 4.1-5.5mm. E. baerensprungi has a tubercle on the mid-line of the rear margin of the pronotum, culiciformis doesn't have this (best seen in side view).

What a lovely insect Grin

Many thanks! Then it must be E. culiciformis, it was really rather small.
Best regards,
Jürgen

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
