A tiny fly with body length approx. 3mm, found near a stream in east China (Zhejiang province). What family could it possibly belong to? Thanks in advance!

Hi, Lauxaniidae, I think. It should be Lauxania and if the antennae sit on a bump, it's L. minor.

Great! Thank you, Eric, for the ID! TumbsUp It looks similar to Lauxania minor but with some minute differences( e.g. leg coloration)
