Cheilosia is close to hopeless... What we see on these rather poor pictures of this male is: orange antennae and hairy eyes, and the tibiae are not entirely yellow. So C. bergenstammi might be a candidate. Compare with Steven Falk's Cheilosia album https://www.flick...690619935/.

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.
