Re: More Phaonia valida

It would help us to know how you've arrived at your proposed identification and if there are any particular parts of the key where you had trouble making a decision.  With photos it is often only possible to give some tips to check on the specimen or help with interpretation of the keys, rather than giving a conclusive result.

Re: More Phaonia valida

Many thanks Stephane. Yes, same specimen - the three photos did not load together correctly the first time.

Re: More Phaonia valida

I'm not good at IDing photos, but P. valida is a big fly compared with most other Phaonia. Hope that is some help.

Re: More Phaonia valida

Thanks Nigel and Phil.

Point taken Phil. I am sure we all have the same problems working with keys on a large group which we don't look at that often. Think you have it right- then someone straight away points out where you went wrong with a relative vein angle or bristle length.etc.

Neil
