is it possible to determine at least the family? The area consists of a small forrest on one side of the way and of a meadow with a small pond on the other side.

I would say it is rather a gall (of Kiefferia pericarpiicola).

Thank you, I never saw this before. But at least it had to do with diptera. Smile

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
