Hi every one !

I pictured what I think to be a Agromyzidae and perhaps a Phytomyza today 2022-05-02 in my garden.
Here are some pictures, but if needed, I can look for details ...

Hope somebody can help me ID this specimen !
Thank you for reading my post !
Have a good day !

I would say this is a Chlorops species (Chloropidae)

This should be Chlorops pumilionis since it has a blackish front tarsus and distal part of front tibia. And the other characters also seem to fit well.

Chloropidae, Chlorops pumilionis (Bjerkander, 1778) [the harmful goat fly] is correct. A further feature is the wide gena, deeper than the 3rd antennal segment.
