Using the "Faune de France" 06 of Seguy, I end up on Hylemya nigrimana. H. vagans[\i] isn't in the keys. It has the femur I grey and not yellow, so is it [i]vagans?

I realised that Botanophila fugax is also a good match.

Comment welcome.

The plumose arista rules out Botanophila fugax.

As far as I know the two species can at present only be identified using male sexual characters
