Cheers Paul
I will hotfoot it into the garden as soon as I finish work tonight. Shouldn't be too difficult to find a 2mm fly in a garden of 40M x 20M, the wind is blowing 25Kts at the moment and it is pouring with rain but hopefully it has found some shelter. Thankfully it only has only one arista to make identification easy.
Should I find this fly..Pfft..where shall I stick the Postage Stamp to send it to you? Frown
Let me guess? Frown

But seriously...Wink..had a look through old threads and http://www.dipter...ad_id=5247 makes me think it may be L.fontinalis which is on my List.

Regards Roger

It may be, but there are other possible species...
