Today I found this fly in a forest in Saxony, Germany. Is ID possible?
Thanks, Marion

I´m not a expert in Diptera, but I think this looks like a Polyporivora ornata.

Best regards

Thank you very much for ID, Truls Lerdahl.
With the species name I looked in the Platypezidae gallery. There I found a second species of the same genus - Polyporivora picta which has a black scutellum like my fly. The Polyporivora ornata in the gallery has a white one. Could the fly be a Polyporivora picta? Is the colour of the scutellum characteristic for the species?

I checked a lot of pictures of Polyporivora, and it seems that P.ovata have white scutellum and P.picta have black scutellum. So if I have understand it right, your must be a P.picta. But I´m sure here is experts that could tell you more about it.....

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

Jewelm699 - did you upload it to a forum (which one?) or the gallery? I can't find it.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
