On the 17th July 2021, after a few unusually hot humid days, I found this 5mm fly attached to our inside kitchen window with the spray of Entomopathogenic fungal spoor. Today, a month later it is still there. It must have extruded pretty strong, self-adhesive, fly glue!

Is it possible to ID the fly?

Flensburg, N.Germany

Thank You

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank
