Very small fly! - Leucopis - female

Very small fly! - Leucopis - Female
Santa Clara, Santa Clara County, California, USA
May 16, 2009
Size: About 3 or 4mm
It reminds me of a tiger fly, but is only about the size of a vinegar fly!
-------------------
Late entry: I may have gotten lucky!
It looks a lot like the Leucopis...


Can anyone confirm this?
