SW France 2 days ago. Body about 7 mm long.

Muscidae. The few Anthomyiidae with 2+4 dorsocentrals are hairier.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
