Tiny hovering fly near fungi - Leiomyza

Tiny hovering fly near fungi - Leiomyza
Hayward, Alameda County, California, USA
December 2, 2021
Size: 2mm
Small flies were attracted to the area where I had flipped the caps of some decomposing mushrooms. These particular 2mm ones would hover in front of me in that area as I was crouched, looking iridescent in the sunlight. The genus ID is from the Diptera Facebook group.
