OK, who's up for a challenge? What is this? Any thoughts on family? It's Diptera, so based on tiny size, habitat and wing venation maybe Lauxinidae, Agromyzidae, Lonchaeidae or Chloropidae? Photographed in late June, central lowland France. I was on a track bordered on one side by the wooded bank of a former sand extraction pit now filled with water. The other side is cultivated farmland.

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
