Calamoncosis duinensis (Strobl, 1893), Chloropidae. The coastal biotope, the peculiarly whitish wing membrane, the semicircular scutellum without tubercles, the ocellar triangle longer than 2/3 of the frons, and the mentioned small size of the fly speaks for this taxon though the body incl. the scutum should be black. May be, a recently emerged and not yet full coloured specimen or the flash light was too strong.
