Mycetophildae

I send my fungus gnats to Peter Chandler for ID, but I don't recall seeing one like this before, with a wide dark shaded wing tip. So I am curious as to what it might be. Can anyone suggest a genus? I might try and key this one myself.

Re: Mycetophildae

I can't speak from experience as I've never found a Greenomyia, but I think that this may be one.

Re: Mycetophildae

Thanks Tony. Two very similar queries, three years apart.

Re: Mycetophildae

It certainly looks just like mine from three years ago. I haven't seen one since.
