This is Microcercuis kerteszi (Becker, 1910), Chloropidae, Oscinellinae. In earlier times (going backwards) it was included in the genera Incertella, Tropidoscinis, Conioscinella and Oscinella. The black enlarged and slightly axe-like 3rd antennal segments and the yellowish anterior margin of the frons are typical characters. It is an abundant fly with preference for open forest biotopes, the larvae are phytosaprophagous.

Misspelled name corrected: Microcercis kerteszi (Becker, 1910), also known as Incertella kerteszi. Both genera are not yet revised. Microcercis Beschovski was described earlier.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
