this 2 - 3 mm fly was found on May 29 in our backyard in Hannover. We have got Tanaceti (not flowering yet) and Leucanthemum (flowering) in our garden within 1 m distance to the fly.
Would Ozirhincus tanaceti be a possibility?

Many thanks for an answer!

It is at least close to Ozirhincus. O. tanaceti is now a junior synonym of O. longicollis.

Thanks a lot, John!
As a non-expert I feel happy about the right track.

Should be Ozirhincus anthemidis based on host plant, color, and small occiput.

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
