Peplomyza litura

Peplomyza litura

Quite an unusual yet handsome small fly this one. From the family of Lauxaniidae, it has a length of 5mm (around quarter of an inch).

Found in hedgerows and on woodland margins, the adults can be seen June to October. Fairly common and widespread throughout England and Wales.
