Hi All

I think this is Melangyna labiatarum (Matt-backed Melangyna). But this is a new one to me.

It was found on the edge of a woodland ride, constantly on the move.

Could someone confirm the ID or put me straight?

Thanks, Gareth

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