I think is is Cheilosia sp. male, but it's not much help, is it? Smile

Oh! Shock

I was thinking about some species in tribe Pipizini (after checking the venation) but I'm unfamiliar with these species. :-( I'd rule out Cheilosia, but thanks anyway for having a look and giving your oppinion, Henrik. Smile

Edit: I'm going to be "brave" and propose genus Pipizella, risking to say something silly. Smile

No, you're not silly, this is indeed a male Pipizella. But without specimen not to be identified to species.....

OK, Gerard, I'll settle for Pipizella then. Smile At least now I have an idea of what a Pipizella looks like. Wink

Loads of thanks!!
