caught on 8.5.2012, Germany, North-Eastern Spessart, mixed mrass and woodland.
With M. Acklands key I arrive at Pegomyia interruptella, but that must be wrong. Can someone help me?

Looks like Pegomya solennis. Does it have a long prealar seta? I congratulate you on the genitalia photos, which look correct for this species. Would be easier to compare if they were orientated strictly caudal, lateral, vertical (for sternite V). If they are in fluid of some sort (glycol?), I can tell you how to hold them in any position for photographing. Send me an email (private message)

The prealar seta is about twice as long as the posterior notopleural.

Definitely Pegomya solennis
