this Stratiomyidae was attracted to the light of our moth trap on a clearing in a wood. Could this be Chloromyia speciosa? The wings are rather blackish and the hind tarsi look yellowish - I don't know, if you could call this "strikingly yellow".

With kind regards,

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
