I'd say male podagrica, based on the proportions of abdomen. See for comparison pinned specimens by Steven Falk. Red bars show witdth of fore- and hind rim of T3.

Hi Karsten,
thank you very much for your interesting message. Yes, "my" fly could be N. podagrica, but there was no hint in the Webside of Steven Falk that the proportions are a hard charakteristic feature. On the other hand the picture in the Diptera Gallery (s. https://diptera.i...to_id=2870) I think looks also like "my" fly. My regrettable result is - under these facts - to name it "Neoascia sp."
Greetings Kuv

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
