Moved from Limosininae.

 
Telomerina flavipes
This is T. flavipes, based on the small lobes of sternite 5.

 
Pages made
I made pages for flavipes and orpha.

I don't have the revision. Did Marshall and Roháček believe that flavipes was introduced in North America or native?

"This is a very common fly, not only in North America and Europe, but also in South Africa (Hackman, 1965), South America (Richards, 1967), Australia (Richards, 1973), and New Zealand (Harrison, 1959). This species has previously been recorded in North America only as Leptocera gracilipennis Spuler. Most of the specimens examined were
collected in carrion traps, but the species is also known from dung (RohAEek, 1983), decaying fungi (Papp, 1973a), caves (Duda, 1928) and mammal burrows (Hackman, 1963). It has been reared from housefly medium by A. Norrbom at State College, Pennsylvania."
