Not Phlebotomus. This is a Psychoda (Tinearia), most likely Psychoda (Tinearia) alternata. Phlebotomus are less hairy, more slender and have narrower wings - see the gallery for an example.

I appreciate your comment, Gunnar M Kvifte.
I am able to take pictures of these little Diptera. And sometimes, to take good pictures .... But unfortunately my ability to identify what appears in my photographs, is very low ...
So thank you very much to all the experts who give me their opinion, the help I provide to identify the insect that appears in my photos. But I have no capacity to know what is the best opinion.
I edit the title to the hope that more experts to review and thus get more accurate identification.

Best regards from southern Spain.

With so many white hairs on the wings Tinearia ustulata maybe is a better guess.

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
ry.wiley.com/doi/1

.2008.00422.x/pdf
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

14.11.17 08:36
I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx
