Diptera associated with dead wood in streams

Hi folks,

I'm working on a project looking at woody debris in streams in Gloucestershire, we are particularly interested in not just how it can benefit the stream itself but also how it can be an important habitat for terrestrial invertebrates. So my question is

-Can people suggest any particular specialist species of diptera we should/could be looking out for on/around submerged/semi-submerged wood in streams?

Some recommendations I've has so far are

Chalcosyrphus eunotus
Lipsothrix nigristigma

Would appreciate any/all help/thoughts people are willing to offer on this,

all the best,
