Hi, this little (~3 mm) black one landed on my hand 20190722 in the garden, close to a deciduous wood with old oaks, beeches and more. I only had time for one short video before it flew away.
Can it be Aulacigaster leucopeza?

Thanks in advance for your comments!

Greetings, Eric

No Aulacigaster, I think. Cephalic and thoracic setae underdeveloped, antennae dark... I would rather say Ephydridae.

Athyroglossa glabra (Ephydridae) could fit but in the gallery it looks less slender with shorter legs.

If it helps, I had an Aulacigaster leucopeza this year; my first. Tony Irwin identified it at http://www.dipter...t7228.html
The stripy eyes seem to be the most obvious feature.

Hi Darwyn, and thanks a lot - you are right, the stripy eyes are the obvious feature as are the prominent bristles.
Unfortunately my fly was saved from a watering place and very wet and the video was short and not clear enough to show the eyes or bristles better.
I think I have to wait to see one again next year!

It could be Athyroglossa glabra.

Jewell699, you should post it in the forum, not submit it for the gallery.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
