I see lots of male Anthomyiidae on the railing. This is one of them. Can he be given a name?

Lars, jizz, my test, for Delia platura/florilega.
To be sure, you have to find image with visible chaetotaxy of t3 - platura/florilega both has a full row of pv of same lenth all tibia along (about 20 setae).

Thanks Nikita. I will keep that in mind. Forgive me for asking, but if "platura/florilega both has a full row of pv of same lenth all tibia along (about 20 setae)" how do you tell them apart?

D.florilega has a nice long dorsal hairs on mid basytarsus.
Also florilega is generally smaller. Also florilega seems to my a summer fly, platura is whole year fly, but especially common in spring.
