Re: Fungus Gnat query

Many thanks Tony. 

It fits well with G. mongolica, certainly looks correct.  A introduced and spreading species I understand.

Peter Chandler agrees that it is Greenomyia mongolica.
If you could post the date and site details here (or email to Peter) the record can be added to the Recording Scheme database.
