Flensburg, N. Germany, 3rd August 2018.

We're experiencing a drought and there have been very few insects around but on this evening, after a bit of rain I saw this on my garage window. Haven't seen it again since.

Poor photographs but maybe someone can ID the family.

Body 5-6mm, wings 5-6mm.

Thank You in advance

Thank you Jan,
This helps a lot because I have carrots in my garden which always get infested with carrot fly (Chamaepsila rosae) larvae but have never seen one of the flies. Now I'll know what to look for.
Warm Regards

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

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.
