Anthomyia species (not pluvialis) male.
According to Mike Ackland, the post-sutural lateral black spot is separated from the small spot above the wing base in pluvialis, but usually joined in the related species. Using this character, pluvialis is shown in this image -

I never was happy with the identifications when looking at keys but they are not my field of expertise, so I shut up and let others do the dirty work and get the honour. :P
