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.

With so many white hairs on the wings Tinearia ustulata maybe is a better guess.

Here in Britain it has been a very poor season for all insects. Most families of fly have been very scarce compared to some years ago. This is about the fifth poor season and it was the worst yet. Wha

May was very atypical and April. April was very cold - the coldest month in 30 years. And May was very rainy. But this does not explain itself why the decrease of insects. Or it is just a normal cyc

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.

05.09.16 16:51
Well it should be compared to the insect diversity and numbers of that region for the last years/decades...

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
