Thread subject: :: Chloropidae (Elachiptera ?) to ID

I found this fly in my garden, in the west of France, in february last year. It looks like an Elachiptera sp. Could it be Elachiptera tuberculifera ?

Thank you .

I don't think it is is tuberculifera which typically has very large tubercles on the scutellum, but I can't see enough detail to suggest which species it is (I'm not entirely sure it's Elachiptera)
