This tiny fly (~2.5 mm length) was visiting flowers of Cotoneaster granatensis (Rosaceae) for nectar at a mountain locality of Sierra de Cazorla (SE Spain), 1400 m a.s.l., 9 June 2021.

I'd appreciate any cue, even just the confirmation that it is actually a Chloropidae will help me.

Thanks !

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
