Ca 3mm found today on window in a barn 33 masl in farmland close to a swamp-forest on a coastal island in the middle of the country. The fly is collected and could be sent for inspection. I suspect curvinervis due to yellow knobs on the halteres and orange face.

Help appreciated as always!

Cheers Jørn

I would say L. scathophagina as the dc bristles are placed about opposite to the wing-bases. In curvinervis the bristles have a more posterior position, closer to scutellum.

In Leiomyza the frons would be black, so this might rather be Anthomyzidae?
Cheers, Lorin
