Small (~5mm) and withish fly with green eyes. No idea of the family. Found today in Lisbon. Very sorry for the terrible quality of the pciture.

Yes. Pretty sure it is 100% tephritid. Wait for Valery. Wink

Check here for an example of a tephritid with hyaline wings:

Ensina sonchi is grey and has hardly spotted wings (cp. http://insektenfo...c2dfb24fbb) but is said to fly much later in summer or autumn, respectively.
