Chlorops strigulus (Fabricius, 1794), (Chloropidae). This robust species was long time included in the genus Anthracophaga Loew, 1866, now a synonym of Chlorops. It is extremely similar to C. frontosus Meigen, 1830, most old records need re-examination. Characteristics (frontosus in brackets), unpublished results of M. von Tschirnhaus: base of arista black (yellowish-brown), behind outer vertical bristle (vte) the whole lateral occiput downwards yellow (below a yellow area eye margin black), acr dense, in the line of the dc inserting on black points (scarce, on yellow ground), palpi short, excavated dorsally (long, normal above), 3rd antennal segment bicoloured (black), tergites dark until their ventral edge (lateral yellow, ventral black again, thus, two lateral stripes), scutellum slightly triangular (widely rounded), all femora more or less black, knees yellow (femora yellow with dark spots/striations), narrow dark line from the lowest point of the eye to the edge of the gena (such line absent), epandrium and surstyli bigger than the compared species (smaller). Larvae produce galls in certain Poaceae (frontosus: reared from Carex).

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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