I frequently found these flies at the edge of a village pond in Burgenland (Austria).

Especially the broad head with the bulging eyes I find conspicuous.
Is the water's edge their habitat?

Cheers, Lorin

All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

I think these are Lispe females, possibly tentaculata. There is a revision of this group available here: https://zookeys.p...hp?id=2240
