Any thoughts on this fly?

From damp riverside site 06/09/18. South Devon.

I started off thinking about Tetanocera but that idea quickly ran into problems; as did my second thought of Scathophagidae and the third idea of Lauxaniidae. So at the moment I can't even get the family.

The combination of bristles on R1, mostly bare arista and clouded cross-veins indicate Dryomyza anilis

Re: Any thoughts on this fly?

So I was heading in the right direction with Tetanocera but didn't check my own notes. On Darwyn's Sciomyzoidea keys I added 'hairy under femora - check Dryomyzidae' but I rushed to Tetanocera without checking the preamble.

Thanks for the help
