UK Fly for Id.

In South Yorkshire, 3 August 2011

From a distance I thought I was seeing Sepsis fulgens or similar "signal fly" - the body-size and wing-fluttering behaviour were similar.

On getting closer I saw that it was unlike any fly I'd seen before - impressively long wings and very big eyes.  The wings shone almost scarlet in the sun.

Sadly it flew off without letting me get a side-view or  see what it looked like with its wings closed.


I'd be grateful for any pointers toward and Id. Ray
