Picture taken on May 16, 2010 on an salvia leaf in an urban garden, Stuttgart, Germany, 250 AMSL.
I have other shots of the same individual. Let me know what body parts are most important for an identification.

Welcome to this forum!
This is Fanniidae
If arista haired Piezura sp.
If arista is bare Fannia sp.
Important for male Fanniidae is a good view on the midtibia and if possible (mostly very difficult to photograph) a view on the mid and hind coxa.
Female are mostly difficult to ID from photos

s are more yellow than this, so it's a Fannia
