this fly was found on a field near the village of Bantikow in Brandenburg, Germany on July 7.
Am I right with Gymnosoma clavatum?

Thanks in advance,

All Gymnosoma are extremely similar, so please don't add "clavatum" unless you have clear indications.
In the Gymnosoma universe, this 'clearly' is not clavatum. Most likely rotundatum. In any case, a male.

Thank you very much, Theo.
Next time I will be more aware in my assumption.

Best wishes to you!

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.

Error 122 is probably a full disk or over quote.
