For nearly 30 years, Dr. Brian Brown knew about a mysterious unidentified phorid fly species, whose females were often spotted around mushrooms, while the males were nowhere to be found. Only recently, did this common, yet secretive, fly have its lifestyle finally figured out after Los Angeles Bed & Breakfast owners Patsy Carter and Lisa Carter-Davis gave the entomologist an unexpected call. The study is published in the open access Biodiversity Data Journal.
