One of these difficult ones :@. Could it be an Anthomyiidae? Or another of those hopeless Muscidae?

OK, if nobody else dares to comment, I'm going to call this female yet another anthomyiid. Please don't ask why:)
I'm currently sorting through Malaise material from springs near the tree limit in Inari, Finnish Lapland. The selection of flies in these traps oculd well be called freakish:o:D

Agree Most likely Anthomyiidae. Did you see a yellow or reddish abdomen Sarah? This just might make it Pegomya

As far as I could see, the abdomen was greyish brown with black markings, but the fly was very nervous and didn't allow me to take other angles of photo. I'm just delighted that I got as near as the family :o, Sarah
