I found this tiny (2.5 mm) and rather strange fly in Quercus suber.
Today, June 17, 2022 in Minas de Riotinto, Huelva.

No idea what it could be. :|

Hi Andre, this should be one of the Acroceridae, like Acrocera sanguinea:
https://www.dipte...to_id=5136
and
De vliegenfamilies met drie voetkussentjes (Zeegers, Schulten)

Thanks, Eric! |t

Never seen anything like this, and never heard of this family. Yes, the specimen of the link is very similar, although a bit "fatter". :D


Greetings!
