I found this freshly hatched 3 mm fly on a dead aspen. The fly ran restlessly on the stem. I managed to capture it. A good hour later it had inflated its wings. Unfortunately, the fly escaped while taking pictures. Is ID possible?
Greetings, Marion

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