  3. WOW! Great photo of an impressive mini-beast! It looks a lot like Coenosia tigrina, but there sooo many of these flies that look similar. I based it on the red "knee area" at the end of the hind femor (and I think mid femur, as well) AND also on the pair of bristles on the hind tibia. I could be misreading those features, though.

    1. Not far fetched- the description also mentions common in greenhouses, and this was taken right outside of one. Posted one month ago, modified one month ago
      1. Oh, interesting! One thing is for sure -- the bristles on its thorax are so impressive! Posted one month ago
