Resting on Angelica sylvestris so this is a pretty tiny fly
No interactions present.
It is a sciarid but I don't thnk you can put a species name on it without dissecting out the genitalia of a male. Yours is female.
Thanks for that. I'll look out for a male...

Is there another sciarid with this distinctive colour scheme?
Apparently so. I had hoped these yellow and black ones could be named on sight but have been told no.
Fair enough, it would be interesting to know what it is. Surely there's no more than two?
