I believe this is a Lauxaniidae.
I tried the key for British Lauxaniidae, but since I don't have good photos of some features (eg bristles on the ocelli) it's difficult.
So I tried an alternative strategy - looking through the diptera gallery. There are some quite similar, but they were all different enough on certain features to reject. So I am left with nothing.
So I think it's down to someone recognising this one. It's not an oddity because i have come across a more-or-less identical species a year or so ago, and mis-identified it as Sapromyza albiceps.

Found in Cumbria, UK. End of May.

I now think this could be a teneral version of a female Tricholauxania praeusta.
The bristles and general appearance look promising - I can't see any counter indications.

Does anyone agree this is possible?
Nigel.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
