Would it be possible to ID the family/genus? Photos taken on 12.04.2019 in Kraków.

Something like that. I am thinking male Microsoma exiguum.

Check the gallery for Microsoma and Strongygaster... abdominal pattern confirms Microsoma.

Thanks. Checked the gallery and I'm positive about it being Microsoma not Strongygaster.
I also had a look at the checklist for Poland and found only two species from the genus: M. exiguum and M. exigua. Are these now synonyms and if not is it possible to ID my fly to species level?

Exiguum and exigua are the same. Microsoma is neuter (Greek soma = body) and exiguum is an adjective which should agree with its noun.
