Hello everybody,

I find another Delia, but looks like different from D. platura, doesn't it? It was collected in a Merendera plant, Majorca. Body length: 4,5 mm.

Thank you very much in advance!

From what I can see, it seems indeed D. platura , but if you have doubt, you can check if there are long hairs present on the mid metatarsus (mid tibia), ....if so, then it could be D. florilega

I have checked the mid metatarsus and I don't see the long hairs, so it could be Delia platura. I have the same doubt with this species: Could you help me?

Mid metatarsus:

Thank you very much, Johanna.
