Otites guttatus (Meigen, 1830)
An uncommon fly over much of the UK and with just a single Sherwood Forest record dating to 1914, this Otites guttatus was found and photgraphed at Clipstone Old Quarter in 2012, but not identified for several months later. The fly is apparently associated with Oak woodland.
