Thanks Paul TumbsUp

Is the Platypalpus, Hybotidae covered with a key in this book?
Ref[The Tachydrominiinae (Diptera: Empididea) of Fennoscandia and Denmark, Part 1]:
https://www.nhbs.com/the-tachydrominiinae-diptera-empididea-of-fennoscandia-and-denmark-part-1-book
or not?

I have collected the specimen for further examination Smile
And I see that in norway there is only a some species with pictures
in the national registration forum artsobservasjoner.no but 39 species are laid into the database of the genus platypalpus.

species with pictures:
Platypalpus cursitans
Platypalpus major
Platypalpus candicans
Platypalpus macula
P. sordudus
P.scandinavicus
P.exilis
P.minutus
P.nigritarsis

For me it looks like Platypalpus candicans.
The only one with 3 black dots on each of the abdomen segments.
But there are probably others with same caracteristics. Smile

I have measured the specimen to 4.5mm and will put some additional pictures.

best regards
Rune

Many Empidoidea have those black dots. They are where the body of the adult attaches to the pupal skin.
