Today I photographed this appr. 3 mm fly at Leerdam, Netherlands. It is a slender fly with long legs of which the femora and tibia are yellow. Also, the front part of the scutum is pale yellowish. Could anybody help with the identification?

Thank you in advance!

May be it is Spanochaeta dorsalis?

Jan,
I think that your Spanochaeta dorsalis may be added to Gallery. Only 2 scutellar setas, short frontal triangle...

I'm sorry Jan, but I found that I have still doubts about my ID of this fly. I remembered that I've seen this fly several times and collected it. Only today I found in my not-ID Muscidae material what I looked for (see photo). This fly has 4 scutellar setas and my test keyed as Coenosia testacea.
I suspect that it is the same fly as yours.
I wrote a message to Martin Suvak (it seems that he likes and knows Coenosia) and asked him to check this thread.

Hello Nikita, yours looks very similar to mine indeed. Thanks for asking Martin to check this thread, let's wait for his opinion.

I've got message from Martin.
He is not absolutely sure, but he also thinks that
Coenosia cf. testacea is the most probable ID.
Also Martin wrote that normaly Spanochaeta dorsalis is summer species.

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
