I found this little fly in a mixed forest in Germany, Saxony in September 2018. Unfortunately there is no satisfying sideview.
Is ID possible?
Thanks, Marion

Thank you very much for ID.
The eyes of the fly were bright red, but the colors can slightly differ. because the photos were flashed.
Best 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.
