    Photos Nobody knows what type of fly yet....

    Even a good forum friend (his name is Brian) or Toby or others know for sure what kind of fly this is except to say it may be a midge of some kind...

    Still not found it yet ?

    It's an odd looking fly but excellent shots. The colours in those wings are very nice and you're right, the head really does resemble a bats.

    He is indeed Peter.



    After some research, it may be Orthocladiinae (Chrionomidae) which basically means, it's a midge.

    I thought that - and someone else suggested the Bibio, but the Diptera specialist made the ID (professor type people I think they are, lol)... and I have seen St Marks flies before and they were bigger than the midge I photographed.

    Ta for the option though Bod.

    We should name it "Bilboia Aprilus Bagginses"
