I photographed this fly in the Torre del Cerrano Marine Protected Area (TE), Italy on March 28th 2021. I'm not even so sure of the family it might belong to (maybe Muscidae?). Is it possible to identify its genus or species just from this dorsal shot?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

I think, Anthomyiidae.

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.
