Looks like Leiomyza dudai (Asteiidae): Halter knob darkened, dc more than their length removed from the scutellum.

Just found this post while searching for Leiomyza requests - the dc really looks short, but the insertion point seem to be well behind the wing base, and according to Merz (1996): Die Asteiidae (Diptera) der Schweiz the hind femur shouldn't be apically darkened, which would be the feature of L. laevigata
Cheers, Lorin

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.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
