This seems to be a Loxocera (Loxocera) sp, but does not easily key out to species.

The thorax is covered with pollen. What throws me off is the combination of relatively short antennae in relation to the head, the completely yellow legs, and the seemingly dark body. THe length was about 7-8 mm. When making the photo I thought this was a Tachinid.

Loxocera maculata looks reasonable

http://micropezids.myspecies.info/file/137

but the legs on the photographed fly are completely yellow, while on the image referred here seems to have dark parts.

Also the body of my fly seems to be all dark (as much as this is visible)

I do not think it is Psilidae. I presume Scathophagidae but I may be mistaken.

It keys out to be Phrosia albilabris. The head shape is somewhat odd for that species though. Thanks for everyone aiding the ID.

That was exactly my idea. Also, the leg setae (but difficult to see in the photos) might be a bit weak as well.

The early Phrosia albilabris are usually missidentified and belonging to Micropselapha. The genera are easy to separate by the long respectively more or less missing bristles on tibiae. In this case it seems to be a dark female of M. basovi. I think that it this species feeding on Corydalis. I would be greatly interested in some specimens for comparison.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them
