Chrysotus gramineu

Thanks for the pointer Ian. What do you reckon to Chrysotus gramineu..? Looking here, I would say a good match, as I said, "what do you reckon"..?

Doli

I suppose it could be C. gramineus, but I wouldn't attempt an ID without a specimen and a key, personally. There are lots of similar looking small Dolis...need to see detail of bristles on thorax and legs and hairs on antennae...etc., really. Nice little fly, though.
