A Phoridae found in North of France, at Oxelaere, the 03 January 2021, in a open garage at the back of the garden, at night
Sadly, I could only do this one lucky picture before she walked under cover before falling in the darkness.
The setae on the abdomen are very long and looks peduliar, I wonder if this could help ? Is there literrature to identify Phoridae genus ?
Renko attached the following image:

The abdominal setae suggest Megaselia rufipes
