Hi together,

I've found this tiny fly a couple of days ago (Tue, Sept. 05th, 2017) in the evening close to Puuluoto (Finnland, Lappland, Tornio) on cf. Achillea sp. Estimated size was about 6mm in length.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Hello Marc,

I think it is Dryomyza anilis (Dryomyzidae).
Best regards,
