Tephrochlamys sp.

Hello,
Can anyone see anything on this dodgy photo to tell which species it is. I found it 2 years ago on my log pile for a few seconds. 
Thanks

Looks like a Brachyopa to me

Re: Tephrochlamys sp.

Similar colour to some Brachyopa, but I'd say it is a heleomyzid, and those large round black antennae suggest Heteromyza rotundicornis

Re: Tephrochlamys sp.

Thanks, I like it.

I thought the black antennae were wrong for Tephrochlamys but it could have been an artefact due to bad light etc. I've done some checking of Heteromyza rotundicornis and a lot of other stuff fits. Much appreciated.
