Acrodactyla? > more likely Oxyrrhexis carbonator

Postby Lennart Bendixen on 25 Nov 2016, 23:12

Hi,
I think this is most likely an Acrodactyla species – is this correct? Is there a key available for all European spp.? The Fitton, Shaw & Gauld 1988 key contains only the 3 spp. that occur in Britain.
Many thanks in advance!

I think it could be Oxyrrhexis carbonator female ? but I never saw that species

ok..Oxyrrhexis doesn't appear in my key (though its known from GB), but looks very similar indeed. Seems close to Acrodactyla. What literature do you use for Pimplinae? Or was it just an experience based guess?

I use the key of Fitton, Shaw and Gauld for generaly Pimplinae
but this species is only cited in this key without description, so it's more an experience based guess

Acrodactyla or Oxyrrhexis
It would be necessary to have a view of hindwing !

Hello D & JP Balmer,

I think this is not Acrodactyla even without seeing the hind wings, Acrodactyla sp. are way slender and smaller among other details

Great, thanks a lot!

Now I found its citation in FSG 1988, it just wasn't known from GB that time.
