Spotted this black fly in early June in east China. Small, body size estimated at only 5mm. Initially thought it was like a Trigonospila but now inclined to think it's something near Leiophora innoxia. So at least could it be something in the tribe Blondeliini? Thanks in advance.

Hi Guplox,

If you really want answers, you need to start collecting this stuff.
Your fauna is very interesting but also very understudied.

Once in a while, we hit the jackpot, as with Trichoformosomyia. But in most cases, even genus is difficult.

The suggestion makes sense here. I'll try to capture a specimen of this curious dipteran next time I chance (hopefully) upon them. Thank you, Zeegers, as always, for the constant help and the encouraging interest. TumbsUp
