Chloropidae, probably Meromyza.

Chloropidae, Chloropinae: Meromyza ?saltatrix (L., 1761). Females cannot be identified with certainty, but this specimen probably belongs here. The tip of the black palpus is to be seen in the upper image. M. saltatrix is the most abundant species in central Europe and thousands can be swept within short time also on dry grassland, see the result in von Tschirnhaus & Stuke (2020) in Studia dipterologica 23(2)(2016): 272-279 in 267-297. The green colour of many Meromyza spp. dissappears soon after pinning them or after preservation in ethanol. A tremendous literature exists dealing with this species harmful for cereal.
