A lateral view would be useful, but I think Chamaepsila

Thanks for your answer Tony

Head shape of this Chamaepsila seems different from fly in this thread.

Your specimen appears to be Chamaepsila limbatella (Zetterstedt, 1847)
I can't see if it's a male, didn't you keep it?

This species is not known from Sweden (, it must be published ;)
