New article
A new article by Martin Suvák (on the behaviour of Coenosia attenuata [Muscidae]) was added today.

Martin, thanks a lot for this amazing and instructive article ! Smile I think I'm going to give up my net and domesticate a Coenosia for hunting now !

I'm very surprised by how little shy this fly isShock. Does anyone know if this happens in other species of Coenosia?

Stephane, I am glad you like it. These flies are inexpensive and you don't need a hunting licence, Wink.

Rui, I can compare only responses of some other Coenosia species during taking photos. Bigger species such as C. tigrina and C. humilis are easily disturbed. Smaller ones such as C. agromyzina, C. atra and C. cf. rufipalpis sometimes tolerate even holding a leaf they are sitting on. But I didn't test their tolerance to manipulation so far.

Thank you Martin, I'll see if I can find another Coenosia that is as calm as this one.Smile
