I found on my sheet trap at night (Netherlands, garden) this fly. I thought it to be Dolichopus (ungulatus), but the highlighted part of wing veins seems too much rectangular. What can it be?

It is not Dolichopus diadema.
Dolichopus griseipennis has much more chances to win. Please catch a male.

At the website I saw that the single bristle of the first hind tarse member makes it to be griseipennis.
