I have photographed today this pair of flies in a deciduous forest 20km West of Paris.
Length about 5-6mm.
I think this could be a Mycetophilidae, correct? Which species or genus could it be?
Thanks for your answers!

How do I submit photos for identification

Probably something in the file's 'ource data. I edited it and saved as png. Now it is okay.

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

No worries. Not everyone has time all the time. Wink

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently
