Sepsidoscinis maculipennis Hendel, 1914 (Chloropidae). See the original description (Annls hist.-nat. Mus. nat. hung. 12: 247-248); also Mlynarek, 2018 (Zootaxa 4471 (1): 001-036, Figs 50-55, 57), Manual of Afrotropical Diptera, Vol. 3, 2021, Fig. 97

While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.

That's apparently what is identified as a sepsid fly approaching the prey of a feeding thomisid spider and flollowing salticid spiders, photographed in Karnataka (India): Hill et al., 2020 - Kleptoparasitic flies and jumping spiders (Araneae: Salticidae) - Peckhamia 202.1, 1-7, Figs 2.2, 5; https://peckhamia..._202.1.pdf

Thank you Dmitry for this interesting article link! I asked for ID of this fly in our forum too (https://diptera.i..._id=104960). It's really interesting that this fly is actually kleptoparasitic. Smile
