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.....
