No interactions present.
For these reasons I'd still put my money on sepulchralis: broad black hourglass shape on t3 & 4, shortish, stubby abdomen, faint grey thoracic stripes, eyes narrowly separated - but I've nothing to compare it with so am staying with genus
I put this up as sepulchralis the day before. There were no others and no response so lost my nerve
latest pics and diptera videos
I don't see these enough to be sure. Hopefully, Roger will come along and comment.
My Flickr photos...
thanks anyway, I've not seen a second one.
Does your interest area include Sciomyzidae?
Yes, to the extent that I collect some for future identification. But no, to the extent that I cannot get hold of a copy of Rozkosný at the moment! If anyone reading this knows where to get a copy of the Sciomyzidae of Fennoscandia, I would love to know about it!
- too steep for me!
What's the matter with you, Jeremy...that only comes out at about £10 per species.
Luckily I have the offer of a copy to borrow, now, when I need it!
an intriguing family I've become fond of since finding Coremacera marginata
another of these today, about 500m north of here, this one with much bolder black/grey hourglass shape on the abdomen.
Also on the same spot my first V. bombylans, a probable Anasimyia with an odd gelatinous-looking snout, and what looks like C. illustrata but with pale basal half of the tibiae.
