I do not have high hopes, as the species are not easy to ID, this is the only shot and has a rather mediocre quality.
However, at least ♂ and ♀ are both shown...

Main reason for requesting ID is that for Austria, only one species (flavella) is recorded, but looking at recent publications, the occurrence of at least inermis and mihalyii seems to be reasonable as well.

So, any thoughts (also excluding possibilities)?

Vienna, late June
Cheers, Lorin

All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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