This fly (quite small one, less than 2mm) was found among fallen leaves of Salix by the river, well within my town's boundaries.

Could anyone please suggest an ID?

Chloropidae. You can very well distinguish the large ocellar triangle on the head. Cannot be mistaken for any other family.

Thanks a lot Paul,

Yeah I see that triangle clearly now. Next time should not be so lazy and check myself taking a look through the binocular microscope.
