This little doli (3 mm) was caught yesterday 27.v.2023, Denmark, North Zeeland, coastal forest where it was sitting on some leaves on a bush.
It had much more green/yellow look alive, so now quite darker at the green parts. Also cribbled a bit when drying. Scape and pedicel yellow.
I thought somewhere around Medetera, but got stuck in the key. I can very well be mistaken.

Any suggestions?

Cheers Rasmus

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