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.

Hi Jan, thank you for the hint - I'll keep on researching.

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.
