odd fly - Clanoneurum americanum

odd fly - Clanoneurum americanum
Crystal Cove State Park, Orange County, California, USA
June 24, 2014
Discomyzinae? Closely resembles this fly identified as Clanoneurum cimiciforme at, of which Clanoneurum americanum would be the nearctic equivalent. Very difficult to photograph due to the bizarre habitus. Coastal bluff habitat, on Atriplex sp. (Chenopodiaciae) [of note - the guide states that the european species mines leaves of Chenopodiaciae]. Poor photo but if my guess is correct there aren't any live photos in the guide yet.

Moved from Discomyza incurva.

Moved from Flies.

R2+3 is close to C as in Clanoneurum.
