Fremont, California, USA March 27, 2010 Size: 1/8-1/6 inch
Found these interesting flies (2 wings for sure) on some algae I've been growing outside. The bloated ones are apparently females (filled with eggs?). They seem to be at least semi-aquatic. No larvae were found. Eggs are the masses of little black dots.
