Another fly found two weeks ago in a wetland. I think it is a Dicranomyia subgenus Melanolimonia. Is it possible to say more ? Maybe stylifera or caledonica ?

Locality : Lesches, Seine-et-Marne, France
April 28th, 2018
length : +/- 5 mm

Thank you for your answer.
It was also my first opinion with tergite 9, but my picture is not really good.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
