I have photographed this small fly on lilies of the valley. End of April near Paris.
I guess it belongs to the family Sciaridae. Correct? If so it is possible to go to the genus?
Thanks for your always helpful answers!

Sciaridae. I do not have any good literature for Europe. The asymmetric fork of vein M may help ID.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
