Hello, I found this fly today in a wet meadow near a river in north-western Germany. Which species is it?
Thanks for you help. Greetings, Adrian

It's a Coremacera (family Sciomyzidae). Here in NL we only have C. marginata so that would be my guess for NW Germany.

Hello James,

thanks for your help! I looked for Coremacera; in this region there are three species: C. catenata, C. fabricii and C. marginata. The last one seems to be the most common and also the others look different. You are right with C. marginata. Thanks!

Greetings, Adrian

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.
