Hylemya strenua
Hylemya strenua are a species in the genus Hylemya, in the order two-winged flies (Diptera), the suborder flies (Brachycera), the infraorder Muscomorpha (division: Schizophora; subdivision: Calyptrata), the superfamily Muscoidea, the family Anthomyiidae, the subfamily Anthomyiinae and the tribe Anthomyiini. Hylemya strenua are found from the Arctic Circle to North Africa.

Adults reach body lengths of 5-9 mm, the males being slightly larger than the females. The upper surface of the thorax (chest) is a dusty whitish-grey. The females have, in addition, narrow brown stripes. The femurs of the males are black and the femalesí are yellow on the 2nd and 3rd pair of legs. The lower legs are yellow in both sexes.
Hylemya strenua are active from May to September in wet meadows, forest edges and gardens where they are found on flowers and on cattle or horse manure. The fertilized females lay their eggs on dung. The larvae hatch immediately and develop in the feces, feeding on the substrates.
