I do not know what this fly is?

It may b not be clear enough even for the genus, but some clue to the family would be appreciated.

Flies page:

Location page:

This area of Elms is rich in fly species, mostly common ones and a dozen or more hoverflies.

This mist be Empis livida, one of the commoner, larger dance flies that is still about in September. One of the charcteristics is that the medial veins just do not reach the wing margin and that is just visible in this picture.

Thanks again. I have some images but these are poor quality of common species.

If you need any to fill any missing gaps, I could help you out.

I have not had a look around the galleries yet.
