Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Muscidae - Lispe? No, Limnophora
Posted by Sundew on 04-07-2022 04:14
Yesterday I saw a Muscid on a Salix
shrub by a little stream, which I think is a Lispe
species. Unfortunately it was too restless to allow for a good series of photos. I hope that the identification can nevertheless be narrowed down a bit. The locality is southwest Germany, 20 km west of Stuttgart.
Many thanks in advance, Sundew

Ah - Limnophora
is not yet familiar to me. This specimen has 2+3 dc, which fits L. triangula
. Are there more species with this bristle combination to be considered?

Judging by the key to central European species, at least two species of Limnophora
normally have 2+3 dc and others (L. nigripes
) are variable.

OK, thanks - this fly remains Limnophora

I suppose female L. riparia
