I would need some help for the genera of this fly found dead in my house and covered with a fungi (I do not know if the fly died because of the fungi or if the fungi grew on the fly once dead). Photographed in Switzerland (Lausanne) in May.
Thank you for your help.

One character that discriminate between the genus Trichosia and the genus Sciara are the presence or not of stronger spine-like bristles amongst weaker investiture in the fore tibia. On the image above, would you say that the fore tibia carries or does not carry such stronger spine-like bristles (I see several stronger bristles but I do not know if this is sufficient to place this specimen in Trichosia).
