Thanks John and Theo!
Would that mean that it's a S. atramentaria then?

According to the key to Palaearctic species, S. atramentaria has "body entirely black, very sparsely microtrichose."

The body color seems to rule out S. atramentaria and probably S. umbratica too. Am I right?

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.
