No drosophilid, probably Pallopteridae.

not Drosophilidae. Maybe Pallopteridae (Palloptera quinquemaculata?)?

Hello People,

An often made mistake this one! Palloptera quinquemaculata (Pallopteridae) is the species it should be then. But that species has a small black spot in the wing base, the most basal crossvein is laso shaded and the body is more yellow. It actually is: Minettia inusta (Lauxaniidae). Often confused these two and also with Suillia variegata (Heleomyzidae) and Neottiophilum praeustum (Piophilidae).

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
