Hawthorn flies

Today I found two flies on the protective cage over the project.  One was a small, female coffin fly, Megaselia sp. (not identifiable to specific level in the female).  The other a hawthorn fly or St. Mark's fly, Bibio varipes (below).


Although probably not uncommon, there are only very few records of this species from Sussex.
