Phaonia tuguriorum (Scopoli, 1763)
Often one of the first flies to appear in Spring, Phaonia tuguriorum is a drab coloured fly. This one was found hibernating under loose bark on Budby South Forest in mid-February 2013. Phaonia species show a distinctive bulge to the outer edge of the wing, which helps distinguish them from other flies.
