Can anyone name this fly ?

The opportunities for insect photography are rapidly dwindling, so I was please to come across this striking fly in Warren Glen yesterday-does anyone know what it is ?

  1. Very difficult identifying flies from photos, but maybe Suillia sp. They are found in damp shady places and breed in fungi and decaying matter.

  2. Thanks Andy, after checking internet images I’m sure thats right-as you say though getting it down to species level is obviusly tricky
