Could the fly in the pictures below be a Chloropidae spec., possibly Trachysiphonella scutellatus? Seen 04-06-2022 on a curled Alnus leaf in the SE of the Netherlands. Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
Annemiek van Dijk

The flat-topped scutellum with closely approximated apical bristles suggests Thaumatomyia. I suspect T. notata.

Chloropidae: Thaumatomyia notata (Meigen, 1830) is correct. Several rows of setulae on the ocellar triangel; approximate apical scutellar bristle are typical for Thaumatomyia. Many posts in .

Hello, I'm looking for literature on chironomid larvae that are able to survive after being entrapped in ice for at least several days . So far I've only found literature on Eretmoptera murphy
