Can anyone help with this fly? I thought it was a Morellia but the setae on the scutellum look wrong and it has 2 pairs of prescutellar acrostichals. It's also very dark. There are 3 Morellias in the UK - aenescens, hortorum and simplex so if it's a Morellia, it has to be one of those. Seen on 15/08/2023 in Angus, Scotland. I have more photos, some from different angles, if necessary.

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