Around Moscow, 20 aug, on tree barc.
I have almost no idae. May be Xylophagidae? But they have to have on third part of antenae 8 secondary segments, here - more, about 13.

Hello Nikita,
This is a member of the family Anisopodidae!
If you look in the Diptera gallery on this site, you will see a picture that I took of a similar fly from the genus Sylvicola.
Yours could be from the same genus, but that is not sure!

Waw! Anisopodidae!
Thank you Gerard, your photo is better than mine.
During Shtakelberg (the data is more than 35 years old) in European part of Russia there is only one genus Sylvicola.

Mycetobia (see here) used to be in the same family. Sylvicola has two subgenera: Sylvicola and Anisopus.

Thank you Paul. Two question.
1. This one is Anisopodidae or as well Mycetobiidae?
2. In five years old book "Russian insecta till family" - if Anisopodidae, than Sylvicola sp. Correct?
