on 08.07.2021 I found this small midge at a forest path near Furth im Wald, Bavaria, Germany.
Is it possible to determine the family? Perhaps Psychodidae?

Best wishes

The antennae looks a bit like Psychodidae but the wings are very different. I can't help.

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
