If I remenber right this 2-2.5 mm long Ephydrid with the milkiy spots on the wing is Scatella.

If so this shoul be one of the stagnalis/tenuicosta pair.

Due to the larger size this is more likely to be S. stagnalis, which is the much more common species according to Fauna Hungariae. THis would make it Scatealla cf. stagnalis

Am I right?

I think Scatella cf. stagnalis is the best label for this photo. The brown dusting on the thorax suggests that it is stagnalis rather than tenuicosta (=lacustris now), but that is a variable character.
