I see a resemblence to Egle, a hairy early spring genus, but some things are wrong:

Anthomyiidae don't have darkened wing between Sc and R1.

Anthomyiidae have strong bristles on hind tibia, almost always including two or more posterodorsals.

Anthomyiidae almost always have distinct vibrissae.

I think this is an acalyptrate like Lonchaeidae.

Here are examples from the gallery of a lonchaeid genus with at least a superficially similar appearance (Earomyia)
There's an Earomyia with a white face here: http://lonchaeida...rboxed/396

Indeed an Earomyia. I was misled by long presutural setae on mesonotum (they are quite long in E. crystallophila, which however has also hairy eyes) and completely dark tarsi (basitarsus almost always yellow in E.). Mesonotal suture seemingly (I know that only seemingly) complete in some pictures. I have no idea which species of E.it is.
