Orange Fly

What ho Forum. I spotted this pretty little fellow yesterday and wondered if anyone has any ideas? About 6mm overall length. Lewis

    I have also seen this little guy frequently and wondered what he was.  No time to get into flies at present though.

    It is the lauxaniid fly Tricholauxania praeusta. Fairly common but usually not behaving conspicuously.
