This little fly was photographed on 25 May 2018 in central lowland France on the banks of a commercial sand extraction pit now filled with water. Rui Andrade has suggested on FB that it is Lonchaeidae. I know it's a long shot, but is there any chance of a genus from this photo?

yes looks like Lonchaeidae - but there is not enough detail in the photograph to say anything further!
