Small muscid? Muscinae? - Fannia

Small muscid? Muscinae? - Fannia

Caught in Malaise trap 27 June - 4 July 2019. This keys out pretty cleanly to a small muscid, possibly Muscinae?

Moved from Muscoidea.

Added images showing A2 curving around to intersect A1, distal part of Sc also seems to fit Fanniidae better. Using the key in Huckett 1975, it looks like hind tibia has a mid-dorsal bristle (photo added), second pair of presuture dorsocentrals about equidistant from suture as first pair of postsutural dorsocentrals (photo added) and oral margin not curved forward (photo added)? So Fannia, as John suggested?

Moved from House Flies and kin.

Thanks John - I'm seeing the curved A2 now, I was confused about the distal part of Sc.
