Thread subject: :: Brachypterous Ephydridae? => Philygria stenoptera (male)

I think this may be an Ephydridae, but I’m not sure at all.
If true then could it be Philygria stenoptera ??
When looking in FaunaEuropea for the brachypterous species of this family as stated by David Gibbs in this post, only P. s. is given for Switzerland. But I have not found any info in order to confirm this hypothesis…
What do you think ? Thank you for your help !

Nov 9th, 2013, Vevey, Switzerland, on a wood fence near a river in a humid wood.
Size: 2.0 mm

Edit:I have seen that Paul has added "(male)" in the description of the pictures in the gallery (thanks for accepting them!), so I edit this thread's title accordingly.
