I really don't have that much of an idea, but I'll try for Heleomyzidae Pfft.

Rome, Italy, 5 mm.

Many thanks, Sarah

Tough call from this photo, but I'd vote for Sciomyzidae. Heleomyzidae have typically a roundish 3rd segment, in sciomyzidae it is more or less elongated.

Thanks Kahis. In fact I was torn between the two families, so that means I must be learning something! Sarah
