Find this little fly on the outside of a house. On Gotland, the island, in the Baltic Sea, the 24:th of September 2022.
Is it possible to identify? Could It be Melanophora corals?
StefanR attached the following image:

Hi StefanR, Melanophora roralis, a male, is correct!

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