Thread subject: :: Another Fly ID from me

I have to disagree. While the habitus is somewhat similar, this fly has lacks the typical wing venation of hippoboscids. How about Coelopidae? Check this pic:

Close enough? These flies are rare in Finland (the low salinity of the Baltic inhibits growth of bladder wrack) and I have no personal experience of them.
