Northern Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Schenefeld near Hamburg, hedge with a drainage ditch between a playground and a field of a nursery school for trees, grown up with bushes like Corylus, Acer sp., Populus and other, 8th of June 2022, Outdoorphotos: kuv.
I would say "Opomyza germinationis" but I am irritated by the black tip at the antenna ... Please help me to get the ID.

If I see well: black stripe along terga/sterna border? In that case Opomyza petrei.

I'm not convinced. The abdomen in O. petrei is much more yellowish. See for example:

In doubtfull cases it's best to check the pro-episternum which is bare in Opomyza germinationis and has some hairs in O. petrei.

Thank you very much Libor and Jan Willem.
I think it's Opomyza germinationis.
