Herina is a genus of flies in the family Ulidiidae. It is possibly the largest genus in the family.[2]

It is a genus of distinctive, small to medium-sized, dark species about 3.5-5.5 mm long, with patterned wings. The head is variably yellowish, reddish, or darkened, whilst the body is either shining black or black dusted with grey.[3] Many are found in marshland or calcareous grassland locations and in coastal wetlands.[4]
