Photograph taken on August 18, 2012, dropped on my desk, burned or blinded by the light from the ceiling, in Motril, Granada, Spain.
Immediate area of the Mediterranean coast.
Apparent size with wings, about 2-3mm

Best wishes!

Very grateful for their identification.
With your guidance I edit the title, hoping that some other specialist also wants to give us their opinion.

Best regards.
