Northern Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Halstenbek near Hamburg, found in an area of tree nursery at a leaf of Rhamnus frangula, length of the insect: 5.5 mm; Outside Photos: kuv, 6th of May 2020. Is my idea - after searching in the Diptera info-Gallery - ok? Please help to get the ID.

Moin Kuv, I think Chamaepsila nigra is correct, see

Bestimmungstabelle der westpaläarktischen
Chamaepsila- Arten (Diptera: Psilidae)
Von Wang Xinli, Beijing:
"Beine nicht einfarbig gelb. Kopf schwarz =>
Tibien und Tarsen gelb, letztes Tarsenglied gebräunt, Femora mit Ausnahme der Knie schwarz. 3 Paare dc"
