Found 29.03.21 between rotten leaves under beeches in southern Germany, 500m
There were at least 10 individuals together. Someone said they could be Sciaridae, but all pictures I found showed greyish larvae, never that kind of yellow. Seems like a big amount of fat ?
Is there sombody who can help me to identify ?
Thank you for your answer.

This is a Mycetophilidae. The larvae have a large ventral opening of the head capsule, unlike Sciaridae. This ventral opening can be seen in the third photo

great - should I be aware of them glowing in the dark ?
Or is luminiscence not their business ?

Thank you for your answer and your help.

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.

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.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
