a few days ago. I took a picture of a medium-sized long-legged fly on a leaf.
I don't really have an idea what family that could be. Is it possible to get a (partial?) determination from the picture?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Garden in Munich (-West), 25.09.2023, app. 6-8 mm

Greetings, Uli

Oh yes, thank you Jürgen. Now I have remembered that I in my second thread here I had an identification of Chrysopilus laetusSmile. That might be an option here as well.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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