Today among the derbis of Oakwoods at 2000m height, a basking fly (Heleomyzidae?) was observed. Its ID very much appreciated. Thanks a lot. Muhabbet

Beautiful spines on the costa. Frustrating that I cannot see enough details

Hmm, I would say Suillia sp. only !
I have never seen such dark specimen from Palaearctic Region :-)

Hahaha, I thought you will be interested, Andrzej. I made a note in my notebook yesterday about the very dark Heleomyzidae from Turkey.
