Hi all,

This specimen was pictured on 2023-04-25 in Belgium.
It seems to be a Chloropidae even a Rhopalopterum ...

Is it possible to ID ???

This specimen seems to be Chamaepsila nigricornis !

Yes I think itis C. nigricornis too but it is preferable to stick to Chamaepsila agg. rosae/nigricornis, cf. nigricornis
