I photographed this fly in Bazzano (AQ), Italy, on October 8th 2020. I think it is a Cecidomyiidae, but I'm not totally sure about it. Is it possible to identify the genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

How do I submit photos for identification

23.02.21 10:02
Probably something in the file's 'ource data. I edited it and saved as png. Now it is okay.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
