This Brachycera was found on the house wall mid november 2023. Wing about 4 mm Is it possible to say what genus it is, or even species. Outside Stockholm Sweden

wing around 4 mm - the image is a bit blurred since the second wing is partly visible under the one in focus

Looks like Opomyza, Opomyzidae. Opomyza florum has a very similar wing (http://www.spessa...lorum.html) and, though having a brown body, tends to become darker in autumn. Change the thread title to "Opomyzidae" and wait for Jan Willem to reply!
Regards, Sundew

Seems like a rather dark female of Opomyza florum.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
