Photographed this tiny fly a few miles north of Bergen, Norway 05.06.2017. It sat on a building near of a forrest, with small lakes not far away.

Is it possible to get an ID on this tiny fly? I think it looks like a Psilidae, but is it possible to find out what species this is?

Best regards

Thanks a lot for the answer, Paul. I understand that this species are difficult, so it would be Chamaepsila I'm my archive.

Best regards

Well, as far as I can tell there is only one pair of dorsocentrals. Considering the fact that the legs are pale yellow and the antennae are not entirely blackish should exclude the only other possibility for species with one pair of dc (gracilis).

If I understand you right, Paul, you say this fly is Chamaepsila limbatella?

If I am right about the single pair of dc, yes. You may be able to see it even better in the Original image. Smile

Yes it seems to be a single pair of dc, so thanks for the ID, Paul.

Hello! There does indeed seem to be a particle of dc, only 2 vt and the mesonotum and abdomen black. So it is Chamaepsila buccata (Fallén, 1826)
