Welcome to the Llynfi valley nature blog, which will feature all aspects of wildlife found in the valley and surrounding areas. Sightings from further afield will also be included, along with postings of highlights from the past.
I'm glad I looked at this as I saw the first image (Sicus ferrugineus) and realised it's probably the same as one I photographed in the Garw Valley yesterday. Anyway, I have a starting point.
Paul check them all out as you might come across the rarer abdominalis :)
Thanks, Paul. I always get flies confirmed by experts e.g. on the dipterist Facebook page or via contacts, but it's nice to have a starting point. Better than having to say 'no idea, what is it please?'. It's not a group I'm passionate about ((except hoverflies)) and I have no reference books but I try and record as much biodiversity as I possibly can.
