Diadocidia ferruginosa
I will call this Diadocidia ferruginosa based on published information. Your fly is distinguishable from two species recorded from North America and consistent with the third. It is possible that what is called D. ferruginosa in North America is not that species (which was described from Europe).

Moved from Flies.
