Re: Unknown Calypterate

I also tried this on Diptera.info and Tony Irwin reckoned it was Muscina levida at https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.p … ost_377025

Re: Unknown Calypterate

Looking more carefully at this specimen, I've got to agree with Pierre-Yves. In particular the absence of pre-sutural acrostichals suggests Phaonia valida rather than Muscina levida. I got it wrong. sad
