This couple (2-3 mm per piece) I saw in June, near Heerlen. The right one was the leading horse and it kept on running around for minutes with amazing speed.
I first thought of Tachydromia sp. because of the running, but they look quite different.
Could it be some Simulium sp., these seem to be very fast too.

Three votes for Scatopsidae.

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
