Hippoboscidae. I think Ornithomyini.

Hi.

I have to disagree. While the habitus is somewhat similar, this fly has lacks the typical wing venation of hippoboscids. How about Coelopidae? Check this pic: www.entomologi.no/insektnytt/1999-1/ColeopaStejnegeri.jpg

Close enough? These flies are rare in Finland (the low salinity of the Baltic inhibits growth of bladder wrack) and I have no personal experience of them.

Hi.
Of course, Kahis is right. I've seen flat body, wide last segment of tarsus and especialy "second" arista. Than I forgot everything else...
I'm sorry Brain.
Thank you Kahis.
