Assuming this is a Graphomya, is it possible to say whether maculata or minor?
No interactions present.
I suspect that this is G. maculata, as I have seen a website saying that there should be an anterior dorsal spine on the mid tibia in minor...and this seems to lack that. Does that sound right?
Thanks for any confirmation.
My Flickr photos...
I agree with above, although that ad bristle (spine is too strong a description)could be obscured - it would also be below mid point if it was there.
For 'spine' read 'bristle'! Sometimes the English eludes me, but that is what I meant! I take your point about the visibility of it...and thanks for your comment, which is helpful.
