I observed this Diptera the 20th of August in Calais in the north of France. I think of a Phaonia angelicae, what do you think ?

seems ok but difficult to be certain with these photos.
i think that i see a phaonia bristle and two rows of posterior setae on the mid tibia but it is difficult to judge accurately. other characteristics match.

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.
