Hello,

I am wondering if there is a scale with units that can be used to weigh diptera? I've tried this before using a handheld scale but many flies cannot be measured. A Platystoma lugubre weighed in at 0.03 grams but i don't even know if this is accurate. Do entomologists even weigh diptera? I'd like to document the weight of diptera. I'd like a handheld device like the one in my photo attachmen. Any tips? and it shouldn't cost hundreds of euros.

Best wishes,
John

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
