Northern Germany, Hamburg-Rissen, Wittenbergener Ufer, walking path along the river Elbe, at a leaf of Prunus, 27th of September 2015, (Photos: kuv). After looking to the Diptera Gallery I think it could be Oswaldia spectabilis. Please help to get the ID.

Well, that is quite a bold claim. I can see no reason why it is not simply Blondelia nigripes female. The piercer is hidden in these angles.

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.
