I went back an looked at your profile. You are one of thoise guys whose afraid to fill in anything. Id love to have a serious entymologist on the boards. Im aware of Rosborne's training and interests in the science . You, it appears, just like to jump in and insult people who you want to "put down". Ats ok dude, Ive gotten worse from many others .BUT, real science is generally collaborative not exclusive. If youre a bugs n bunnies kind a guy, Id be proud of it, I wouldn't be some rascal who slithers around to trade insults. Did my initial post somehow annoy you? I reread it and wondered how you got all bent out of shape over my saying this was a dipteran wing pattern??
You could have shared information more collegially and less mean-spirited rather than immediately jumping out and going for the insult. My insults were, as is typical of any net based discussion when someone lashes out, a response to you in kind.
, However, I love learning and Ive never been afraid to make a statement based on my limited knowledge in a field. THATS how I learned.
If I annoyed you, I apologize. Now Id like to hear how we distinguish this bug as a bee from those wings (Which still look fly-liketo me, that is, they only appear as ONE pair of wings(like all dipterans) and I thought I see a palp at the base of the wings)
