Good morning, the subject can be a dipter of the family of Lonchaeidae - Silba sp. o Muscidae - Hydrotaea chalcogaster?
Thank you. Wink

Hi I don't think this is Lonchaeidae - its not too easy to tell from the photos but the tarsi look too long and narrow

I was also in doubts. Well, if Iain wrote that it is not his charge, than it should be mine. In this case Ophyra chalcogaster seems to me a reasonable guess.
