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.

Sometimes search bots cause heavy traffic, on occasion the site is being swapped by server requests, probably hackers trying to find an entry point to hack the server.
