Chloropidae, looks like Elachiptera
sp.! But I'm not sure, do you have any clear pic? :)

This fly is so small, you have to come so close to it, that it flies away even when you breath, that I'm already happy with these results as I have a small digital camera. I am even amazed every time that this camera can sharpen such a small insect, as with my eyes I can see only a small spot.
These pictures seemed to be better than other ones I had, but I think we must stick to a uncertain Elachiptera spec. or even a Chloropidae spec...?
Thanks for your reaction!!

If I seen correct, seems there are some long orbital setaes and again if I be more correct seems they are 3 numbers...?
So I guess it is Elachiptera
sp. but just 50% for sure! ;)

I appreciate your efforts and it is hard to see.
So I make a Chloropidae spec. and add to details: maybe Elachiptera spec. (50%).
Then everybody is happy, especially me..:)
Thanks for your help!
