Another fly found two weeks ago in a wetland. I think it is a Dicranomyia subgenus Melanolimonia. Is it possible to say more ? Maybe stylifera or caledonica ?

Locality : Lesches, Seine-et-Marne, France
April 28th, 2018
length : +/- 5 mm

Thank you for your answer.
It was also my first opinion with tergite 9, but my picture is not really good.
