I pictured this Diptera today in my garden.
After some search on forums I could not determine it.
This specimen is about 3,0mm (measured on picture) !
Is it possible to ID ?
Thank you for reading, for your comments and / or ID !!!

Hi, this seems to be a miner of the Agromyzidae, perhaps a Phytomyza sp.
On what plant did you find it?
Posted by John Carr on 27-04-2022 15:32
Agromyzidae subfamily Phytomyzinae. What plant is it on?
Posted by Tetrao on 27-04-2022 15:50
the plant is Sambucus, surely Sambucus nigra !
Thank you both for help !!!!!!!

Yes, it's a female and it seems to be Phytomyza gymnostoma. It's host is Allium - if you want to be sure, you may look at leek leaves in summer:
