    I don't think I recall ever seeing this type of fly before...found it flying around in our office one day and took this photo...if anyone knows what it is, I would be very appreciative of any ideas...

    Long-legged fly also called a Doli fly due to the scientific name of the family - Dolichopodidae

    I would say most likely it is down to the genus Condylostylus but probably can't ID further than that without better pictures.
