I have photographed this small fly stuck on a butterwort in Asturias (Spain), about 1250 asl.
Any idea about its identity? Empididae?
Thanks for your help,

FRV attached the following image:

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