I took a picture of a large fly on leaf just below a birch tree in our garden.

My guess is that it could be a female of Trixa conspersa. Can that be confirmed or excluded from the attached image?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), 05.08.2022, app. 10-12 mm

Greetings, Uli

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
