Another fly from Flitwick Moor, Beds on 2 June 18

This was another of the flies that I caught at Flitwick Moor, Beds (TL046353 )  on 2 June 2018.  It was swept by me from an area of Juncus effusus etc with Sphagnum spp and Polytrichum commune at Flitwick Moor in Bedfordshire, on 2 June 2018. Unfortunately my manual dexterity is now so poor that I cannot undertake any fine manipulation of specimens or microscopy etc. I would be very grateful if anyone is possibly able to identify it from these images. I do also have a specimen.

Many thanks

Alan
