possible Micropezidae?

Found in a domestic situation near to an orchid, is it possible anyone could identify it?

As always and in the future any expert help would and will be appreciated.

Tony

P.S. is it possibly an Anisopodidae specifically a Sylvicola fenestralis?

Re: possible Micropezidae?

This is a Sylvicola species (Anisopodidae). The arrangement of the wing veins suggests S. punctatus (the upper two veins from the discal cell are very close together at their base). In S. fenestralis the upper two veins are separated by a cross-vein.

thank you very much Tony for sharing your expert knowledge. That amount of detail at this stage escapes me.

Nothing to do with Micropezidae of course, which look like this http://micropezids.myspecies.info/

Thanks Rainieria. Tried to correct myself  but couldn't find a way to edit the subject line.
