Hi All

Found this fly in my back graden a month or so ago.

It was here one minute gone the next and I only managed a few bang average pictures.
On closer inspection I noticed that it have a "blonde beard" - can this fly be IDed?

Thanks, Gareth

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
