Arachnidomyia Arachnidomyia wing - Arachnidomyia

Nice to see photos
of new (to BG) genera.
It would be useful to have some labels and comments as to what differentiates this wing from the wings of other genera in the family, or even why this is the wing of a Sarcophagid and not that of another family.

thanks for the advice. I'll think about how best to make such a figure, like your color coded scutum setae photo. I'm about to add some photos of tabanids you'll probably like.
