Is it possible to identify this fly?

Poor photo, taken at window, so overexposed. Location is Suffolk, UK.
I've searched google and have a feeling it may be the Sciarid Fly Bradysia paupera. They are 3mm long from head to end of abdomen.

Whatever the species, I'd like to understand it's life cycle and all it may entail in more detail.

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
