I beat this fly from Beech Fagus sylvatica today in N Scotland. A suggestion of its identity would be very welcome.

A few images follow. Length was 4.5mm.

Thanks for any hints.

Hi Murdo, it could be Opomyza germinationis (Opomyzidae)

Thanks, Eric. That looks very probable. Not a family I have engaged with before.
