Tonight while I was photographing moths, I also photographed these three flies. The two on the right are the same fly. The two on the left are obviously Clogmia albipunctata. But what is the other one? I combined all three into one photo to make clear the relative sizes.

Interesting. They look like close relatives. But I do not know the Texan species and genus list, so I can be wrong. In the right ones I cannot clearly see the veins, especially the two forks and where the anal vein reaches the wing border. These three points sometimes make it possible to go to the genus. Mayb you can see it on the original pictures (with C. albipunctata too)?

Had I realized this one was so unique I would have tried to capture it. In fact, I went back and captured the only fly that was there, but I think it's a different one. I'll keep my eyes open in case I see another one like this. That fly was moving around so much I'm surprised I got as good photos as I did. There was no time to focus - usually not even enough time to frame the fly. I probably should do more capturing than I do.

It almost looks like this is a cross between C. albipunctata and Lepiseodina conspicua.
