Good evening,

This one I saw in May near Heerlen. It was about 12 mm long and having no experience at all with this part of the diptera-section I would range it somewhere near Keroplatidae or Mycetophilidae.
Is that wrong or is that very wrong ?

This is one of the Keroplatidae. it maybe Platyura marginata, but I will need to check. Wink
