I photographed this fly in the garden on Rose today. Unfortunately I can't say how big it was, but I would say not too big and not too small. Could this be a fly from the genus Phryxe?

Hi Waldgeist,

I have looked at a few pictures on the internet, it
could also be this species. It is very difficult to identify flies.

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