Platypezids

Platypezids - Flies
Platypezids (gouache, 2000). Signed limited edition of 300 on fine card. A3, £60.

A plate commissioned for Peter Chandler’s superb monograph of European Flat-footed Flies (platypezids) published as part of the Fauna Entomologica Scandinavica Series in 2001. These secretive flies breed in fungi and are most numerous in woodland during autumn. There are some striking species, and I wish I could have painted more of them.
