thomae

Can you explain why it is definitely thomae, Roger? Would be useful for future reference!

I think it may be old Taxonomy Ian , I am sure Roger will Clarify

The revision to Genus given the availability of keyable features on one image I think is a Safe Observation ??

Super Family Sciaridae 19 genera 266 Species

Sciara hemerobioides(=Sciara thomae) in Freeman (1983) And a revision of British species was suggested Chandler (2010)

Sciara [Lycoria] hemerobioides [thomae] (Scopoli 1763) (Family Sciaridae)

NBN give the synoymyms of

Sciara hemerobioides (Scopoli, 1763)AS insect - true fly (Diptera) Sciara thomae, Tipula hemerobioides, Tipula thomae

Thanks

Thanks for that! I was being a little lazy...having looked in Freeman and at the Checklist, I think I can see that it has to be thomae. I had persuaded myself that analis was found here, as well, but apparently that is not the case.

Sciara hemerobioides

Hi Ian

Sciara hemerobioides = Sciara thomae ? Was it revised all data sets indicate Sciara hemerobioides is current ??? and therefore the initial identification correct

Many Thanks

thomae

Yes, original ID was essentially correct, but it is now thomae on the latest checklist.
