Hi Everyone !!!

I pictured this Diptera in my garden on 2023-09-12. I could measure the specimen on picture : 9,4mm
With such nervation I could key it to the Phyto genus.
As I already pictured one Phyto melanocephala in my garden on 2021-08-03 (a female) I think it could be the same species ... Could it be another Phyto species ?

Could anyone help me ID this specimen ???

Hello Didier, I'm pretty sure you are right with female Phyto melanocephala.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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