This very small fly took a rest on a leaf at our garden hedge.

I suspect it could be a female of a Chlorops species, maybe Chlorops pumilionis.

Can that be confirmed or excluded from the attached image and/or is a determination possible?

Is the stuff at the end of the abdomen an egg-packet or just excrements?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), 15.05.2023, app. 3-4 mm

Greetings, Uli

Hi Roger,

thank you for the identification, at least the family was correct Frown. That seem to be "pheromone sacs", though. Never heard of that before ...

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
