Hi,
there is a protrusion of the frons at the base of the antenna, so my assumption would be that species, and not L. cylindricornis.
Apparently, this species and other Lauxaniid flies help with the distribution of the spores of rust fungus - there were plenty of these on Falcaria vulgaris leaves infected with Puccinia (the sweet smell is quite well detectable).

Another Lauxaniid: Cnemacantha muscaria?

All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

May a beg for a couple in alcohol? I would like to at least examine a female, but a male would be nice, too. Wink
