I found some of these dark Nematocera with yellow spots on thorax and yellow halteres in a forest on dead wood. Is ID possible?
Does someone know the passenger on the second picture?
Thank you, Marion

Germany, Saxony, June 2022.

Hi Marion, it's a Gnophomyia cf. viridipennis and the stowaway is one of the Pseudoscorpiones - Chernes sp.?
