this appr. 6 mm fly was photographed on Sept. 15 in a moist part (swampy in "normal" times) of a former marl quarry (cement industry) in Hannover, Germany. Is an ID possible?

Thanks for answering!

Hello John,

thank you! So I assume, the species can't be named.

Best regards,

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.
