Welcome to iSpot!

As far as I know you are most likely correct that this is Sciara hemerobioides, but I've never been certain whether there are any other related species that look similar - does anyone know?

Thanks to Steve_V for the confirmation that Sciara hemerobiodes is not the only possibility for the black and yellow flies, I'd often wondered about that, and feared that it wouldn't be so easy to get to species level with these!
