It is a species of Crossopalpus
, e genus of very small dance flies belonging to the Hybotidae. The adults are predators, and the larvae are also presumed to be predacious, living terrestrial and maybe in humus-like dead wood. Based on the picture alone it will probably not be possible to identify it to species.
