Rhagionidae to identify please... - Rhagio lineola - Male
Sherbrooke, Quebec, Quebec, Canada
July 9, 2007
Hello,

Here is a strange fly photographied within my thuya hedge last July in Sherbrooke, Quebec (near Vermont).


I think is is a fly from the Rhagionidae family... Maybe Rhagio sp...

Any idea about its species???

Thank you very much for your always appreciated help!

Hey Michel,

This appears to be the introduced Rhagio lineola well collected around the Ottawa area. Distinguished by its dorsal triangles on the abdomen and mesonotum hair entirely light coloured. (Though the head/eye colour throws me off a little)

Hope this was helpful!

Hello Eric, Finally the fu
Hello Eric,

Finally the further I can go is that it is a fly from the Rhagionidae family, genus Rhagio...

It is then a Rhagio sp.

Thank you for your help!

Michel
