Dear Forum,

I found these 2 gnats at the inside of our window. I believe they're the same species, although one exemplar was more greenish than the other. Both of them were generally quite hairy (wings, antennae, legs...), and both had extremely long fore-legs (while both had one side, seemingly, broken off), which they didn't use for walking, they simply held them at the front while walking with the other 4 legs.

Any option to get the right ID?

Thanks,

Markus
