Is this Hybos femoratus

I see this small fly (about 4 - 5 mm) has black hind legs, and the front legs are (at least in part) a reddish-brown colour.

There is also some sort of lump on the inner side of F1, midway.

Can this be identified?

Thanks.

Re: Is this Hybos femoratus

Having just been looking at Hybos for one of my finds; this one certainly looks likely for H. femoratus. H. culciformis has all black legs.

Re: Is this Hybos femoratus

Thanks Geoff. That was what I'd concluded.

But I don't know if there might be doubt, for some reason I'm not aware of. There's often a trap for the unwary!
