Small reddish fly on Ground Elder inflorescence

Small reddish fly on Ground Elder inflorescence

Observation - Small reddish fly on Ground Elder inflorescence - UK and Ireland. Description: Images 2 and 3 are from the second half of June in 2011 and 2010 respectively and in the same localized patch of Ground Elder. So this gnat seems a fairly stable feature of this plant’s fauna. Initial ID from a post of mine “Small Tipulid?” to Dipterists
