Hi,
found indoors, Vienna (early April). Could it be Scatella palustris?

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.

The hairy face, single fronto-orbital bristle and the costa only extending to R4+5 all add up to Scatophila.

Thanks Tony! I cannot find a key for the species, can you help out?

I think your best option is a paper by Jens-Hermann Stuke (2010). Die Uferfliegen Niedersachsens und Bremens (Diptera: Ephydridae). Entomologische Zeitschrift, Stuttgart. 120: 171-189 and 195-222. [Scatophila is on pp.213-216]. If your specimen is a female, it may be more tricky. I think I have a copy I can send you.

Using the key Tony provided, I reached tentatively S. caviceps.
The scutellum appears to me dusted at the basis and at the tip.
