Platypezidae

Hello,

While sorting out the grey platypezids I photographed in the summer I came across this which I think is Lindneromia dorsalis. Can any one confirm that...or otherwise?

Thanks

Re: Platypezidae

Not Lindneromyia, as cross vein dm-cu is too close to the wing margin. This is Platypeza and I think it is P. consobrina, but I can't see enough to be sure of species.

Re: Platypezidae

Hello Nigel,

I find that I have photos of two individuals which have some differences in the abdominal stripes, at least, which might be nothing more than normal variation.   I've had a look at P. consobrina which, as you say, looks possible.  Back to the drawing board.  I shall have a Platypezid project next summer. The trouble is the blighters are always rushing about.

Thanks
