I captured this fly two days ago, on 20-Sep-2008, in Crete, Greece, as it was feeding on Urginea maritima flowers. I'd say its size was about 5mm.

EDIT: My original size estimate was way off. Theo is right, its size must've been at least 8mm (compared to the flowers it's on). He identified it as Bithia sp. Thanks Theo!
