Picture-Winged Flies


These are flies from the family Ulidiidae. It seems that people did not really bother to give all of them common names, but they are sometimes called picture-winged flies.

They are probably the species Myennis octopunctata but I have only identified them from the Internet.

This particular species seems to like to gather on some bracket fungus. I remember seeing these flies at the same location where the picture was taken decades ago, but I never knew what they were.
