Dear all,
on 23.04.2022 I found this fly in a forest on the underside of a grass leaf. Do you know which species this is? Thank you in advance!
Best, Adrian

Hi Adrian, it's a male of the Stratiomyidae - could be Beris sp. (chalybata?), but for me not enough details to be sure.

Yeap, that is the male B. chalybata.
