Hi,

I have photographed this long-legged fly on December, 20km West of Paris.
Deciduois forest.
Any idea of its identity? Family, genus?

Thanks for help!

Could be Dixidae, but difficult to be sure without pictures of wing venation

In December it could be Trichocera.

Good point John - I hadn't spotted the date!
