Which species could be this Minettia with a single pair of spots on abdomen? Following Shatalkin key and disregarding color of palpus, maybe tinctiventris, but, then, shouldn't there be a black spot between the antennae?
(French Riviera, 03-IX-2019, wing length 5,4mm)
Thanks in advance.

Yes, this one is tricky, but I will not say anything definite without the actual specimen...

Thank you, Paul. Following your answer, I tried to collect similar specimens at this place but did not succeed.
