Thread subject: :: Ephydridae : Scatophila

Edge of beach, Pembrokeshire, UK

Known distribution on NBN in Wales are S.caviceps, S.cribrata, S.despecta + S.quadriguttata

Checking against Drake key though, it is not
S.quadriguttata - wrong markings on thorax and base of wing on this one dark
S.cribrata - colour of halteres

Wing and abdominal markings of those on BOLD seem more correct for S.caviceps than S.despecta.
