I found some information about this genus.

Iberfauna only names one species for Spain, Ceratopogon niveipennis.
http://iberfauna.mncn.csic.es/showficha.aspx?rank=T&idtax=63066

As I have no idea whether this is correct I read "Beitrag zur Kenntniss der Gattung Ceratopogon Meigen" by J. Winnertz.
The description of its syn, C. candidatus and drawing of the wing fit my specimen.

Is it possible to identify these species by photo?
