Small Fly - Condylostylus occidentalis - female

Small Fly - Condylostylus occidentalis - Female
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
June 27, 2018
Size: 5-7mm
Looks somewhat similar to Condylostylus-occidentalis, but is a bit smaller and shorter. Was hanging outmin the same area as the Condylostylus-occidentalis I was photographing. Wondering if it is male and female? I have also included an image of the Condylostylus-occidentalis I was photographing near it.

Two different individuals

Thanks for the reply. I thoug
Thanks for the reply. I thought it was obvious why I posted the separate individual. It is not clear, but I think you are saying they are the same species with one being the female and the other the male? That was my suspicion, but wanted to to confirm it.


I already un-linked them for you and moved them into the genus.
You are correct about the genders. Let's wait for expert help, before moving these images to the species level.
