Moved from Myopinae.

Moved from Flies.

Moved from ID Request.

At least that's what I think from this angle

Excellent suggestion!
Having had a look, I'm inclined to agree. Something in the Myopinae, I'll wager.

Still, best to wait for one of the Diptera specialists to be sure.

I've moved the image to Diptera and added a couple cropped shots.

Please always start with cropped images. The uncropped ones are not needed.

Odd one!
Or maybe it's just the angle. In any case, I suggest moving your post to Diptera for expert attention.

In addition, it wouldn't hurt to crop the pic some (only you and editors can see the full-size image).
