Hello everyone,

I think that this is a member of Sphaeroceridae and it looks similar to Leptocera genus. Anyone able to confirm the genus?

Best wishes,

Leptocera or Rachispoda

Thank you, John. I appreciate you very much.

it might be difficult to figure out a genus because it is covered in mites on the ventral side, some of which is visible in this photo (the reddish area to the left of the thorax).

I don't know what the white stuff is on the thorax. Very dirty fly :)

Best wishes,
