ID Request please

Hello all,
Could I have some help with these three please?


https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4317/36182130346_a73504e876_h.jpg
The first was taken on the 28/07/2017 in grassland/marshland Warwickshire.

The second was taken 25/08/2018 in Trench Wood, Worcestershire. (I thought Limnia sp.?)

The third was taken 15/09/2018 in Grafton Wood, Worcestershire. (I thought Emmesomyia sp.?)

Thank You
Jon

Re: ID Request please

First a lauxaniid, second a Limnia, as you say, third a Phaonia (muscid)
They're very good images so someone with more time/expertise may be able to identify them.

I think the second one is Euthycera fumigata.

On closer view I agree.

Re: ID Request please

I have tried to learn identification of the orange Lauxaniidae by using Laurence Clemon's keys; but without much success.

Anyway, if I attempt your fly I appear to come out at Sapromyzosoma which gives a choice of S. quadripunctata or quadricincta and going by what looks like fairly long middle tibiae spurs my guess would be for the second choice.

But strictly just a guess, definitely not a firm identification.
