Is this a fannia sp. [species in the Fanniidae family] and can it be determined from the photo?
Location: Norway, North-Norway 68degN in the border between Nordland and Troms.
Habitat: Near the sea. In grasland/edge of birchforrest.
Size: unfortunately not determined. But initially wrongly determined as a small hoverfly.
Date: 05.06.2019
Experts have told me that determination can be done by the "spikes" on the legs.. hopefully.

Many thanks and many greetings from the cold north.
