This couple (2-3 mm per piece) I saw in June, near Heerlen. The right one was the leading horse and it kept on running around for minutes with amazing speed.
I first thought of Tachydromia sp. because of the running, but they look quite different.
Could it be some Simulium sp., these seem to be very fast too.
