Not Phlebotomus. This is a Psychoda (Tinearia), most likely Psychoda (Tinearia) alternata. Phlebotomus are less hairy, more slender and have narrower wings - see the gallery for an example.

I appreciate your comment, Gunnar M Kvifte.
I am able to take pictures of these little Diptera. And sometimes, to take good pictures .... But unfortunately my ability to identify what appears in my photographs, is very low ...
So thank you very much to all the experts who give me their opinion, the help I provide to identify the insect that appears in my photos. But I have no capacity to know what is the best opinion.
I edit the title to the hope that more experts to review and thus get more accurate identification.

Best regards from southern Spain.

Thanks to everyone

Grabdornen, surely spines on the cerci for egg-laying in soil or sand?

14.11.14 11:00
graben -> to dig. First request was for Grabdomen which is 'burial dome', LoL.

14.11.14 10:36
The literal translation of Grabdornen is grave (Grab ) thorns (Dornen). I think the best English translation is "spines".

13.11.14 16:42
Legrohr am Ende (cerci) mit kraftigen , nach oben gerichteten Grabdornen
