I see bristles so it's probably one of the atypical Calliphoridae in the Melanomya group. Based on the American literature I have it can't be Menalomya s. str. because the only species has dark halteres. It can't be Opsodexia because that genus is American. The remaining groups are Eggisops and Angioneura. There might be additional European genera I don't know about.

If you look at the calypter, it is rhinophoridae-type .
Now, this does occur in some Angioneura, so that does not contradict John’s analysis. But the strong apical scutellars amd especially the very strong bristle at base of wing, well shown in first pic, do !
So, I’d say it is Oplisa (Rhinophoridae)

Could you please check the ocellar bristle ? They seem to be reclinate, ie. bent backwards.

I am glad North America is deficient in Rhinophoridae. They make too much trouble. Our only common species is the imported, distinctive Melanophora roralis.
