Mydaea corni (Scopoli, 1763) 
This is another Muscid for which there are plenty of historical records from the 1920's, but no traceable modern records other than this one recorded and photographed by Peter Smith at Netherfield Lagoons in October 2020. Mydaea corni is rather patchily distributed in many parts of the UK. Thanks go to Peter Smith for providing the photographs below.
