Beach Fly 2 - Oedoparena

Beach Fly 2 - Oedoparena
Seattle, King County, Washington, USA
February 16, 2013
Intertidal zone, Myrtle Edwards Park, Seattle.

Moved from Canacinae. I fouled this one up. However, Oedoparena is just as exciting a find as Canacidae

on the bright side
It got us to sort out the canacid/tethinid taxonomy.

No problem. I just try to find the interesting insects. I leave it t the experts to sort them out.

Moved from Canacidae.

The first canacid in the strict sense on Bugguide! This closes one of the last prominent gaps in BG at the family level. The family Tethinidae is nowadays included in Canacidae so there are some other pictures already.

Thanks for the ID. I am glad I was able to make a contribution.

Moved from Flies.

Scathophagidae or an acalyptrate.

Moved from ID Request.
