Is it possible to tell genus and eventually spieces of this 3 mm fly?
Photos from 14 October 2014 Rö, Icktjärn 62 N, E 17 Ångermanland, Sweden.

Thanks for your help in advance

With plumose arista and medial bristles on tergites 4 and 5 it should be Hylemya (including Hylemyza). With red legs it is not partita, urbica, or variata.
