Hi Kostas, I'm sure, you are right: a male S. longicornis.

It is from Greece, so please take care !! There are many more Stratiomys in Greece.

That said, this is also according Rozkosny S. longicornis. Southern specimens tend to be lighter of colouration than Central European ones, as well shown.

Thanks for your warning, Theo, I appreciate it! I checked with fauna-eu before answering and found flavissima (Odontomyia) , longicornis, chamaeleon, ruficornis. The other 3 seem to be quite different from longicornis, that encouraged me to suggest longicornis.

Greetings, Eric

Good to hear ! The quality of fauna-eu is varying strongly between families.

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.
