This diptera had a short break on a wall : first thought about some Hymenoptera Ichneumonidae because of its slender figure.
Only when I came nearer I realized it was some diptera. Abdomen was very sharp. I unfortunately didn't have time for a profile shoot : it was already far away...
I've been told (thanks Camille Thirion !) it should be some Micropezidae. Is it possible to precise a bit more ?
Saint Apollinaire (21), France - 25th July 2004 - body length 13 mm approx

Thanks !

Hai Benoit.
It is indeed a species of Micropezidae, and by the looks of the coloration of the legs (the white tarsal segments from leg 1 and 3) and the wings (with some darker markings), I would say it is a Rainieria calceata (Fallen, 1820)

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
