Small gray fly - Leucopis

Small gray fly - Leucopis
Stulsaft Park, Redwood City, San Mateo County, California, USA
July 11, 2010
Size: ~ 3 mm
This small gray-silver fly was perched on a live oak leaf. Only got this one photo and was not able to collect it. Looks vaguely muscoid? Probably frass, but wanted to make sure it wasn't something unusual first...

Moved from Flies. Thanks again Steve! :)

Yes, this is a species of Leucopis (family Chamaemyiidae).

Not an ID but take a look at Leucopis.

Thanks Ilona!
That does look similar.
