Another Picture Wing ?

Having been able to identify the fly that hatched from the Knapweed seed heads we thought we would have a go with those from the Burdock seed heads.

THe first we think might be the corresponding gall moth from Burdock - Terellia tussilaginis. The second we have no idea but lots of these little bright green flies have hatched from the seed heads.

Any help gratefully received.

Continuing the Picture Wing theme, I found these photos in my 2013 archive, awaiting identification.

I think it's the Celery Fly (Euleia heraclei) but I'd be grateful for confirmation. Apparently, the males display prominently on leaf surfaces and await the arrival of the females, so I'm guessing the one in the pictures is a hopeful male. I also noticed the date of my photos was the 12th September 2013, so when the sun comes out and the wind finally drops, keep your eyes peeled !
