This seems to be a Loxocera (Loxocera) sp, but does not easily key out to species.

The thorax is covered with pollen. What throws me off is the combination of relatively short antennae in relation to the head, the completely yellow legs, and the seemingly dark body. THe length was about 7-8 mm. When making the photo I thought this was a Tachinid.

Loxocera maculata looks reasonable

http://micropezids.myspecies.info/file/137

but the legs on the photographed fly are completely yellow, while on the image referred here seems to have dark parts.

Also the body of my fly seems to be all dark (as much as this is visible)

I do not think it is Psilidae. I presume Scathophagidae but I may be mistaken.

It keys out to be Phrosia albilabris. The head shape is somewhat odd for that species though. Thanks for everyone aiding the ID.

That was exactly my idea. Also, the leg setae (but difficult to see in the photos) might be a bit weak as well.

The early Phrosia albilabris are usually missidentified and belonging to Micropselapha. The genera are easy to separate by the long respectively more or less missing bristles on tibiae. In this case it seems to be a dark female of M. basovi. I think that it this species feeding on Corydalis. I would be greatly interested in some specimens for comparison.

Yes, this keyed out to be Micropselapha, as this fly does not have palpal bristle, wheras Phrosia has one.

Is this a different species as M. filiformis? In the Fauna Hungariae, and also in Fauna Europaea, this is the only M species mentioned.

I try to catch this fly, but this seems to be a rare species in Hungary, so not sure if I will meet the species in the future.

Yes, there were Corydalis in the general area.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

06.05.21 22:31
FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.
