this 2 - 3 mm fly was found on May 29 in our backyard in Hannover. We have got Tanaceti (not flowering yet) and Leucanthemum (flowering) in our garden within 1 m distance to the fly.
Would Ozirhincus tanaceti be a possibility?
Many thanks for an answer!

It is at least close to Ozirhincus
. O. tanaceti
is now a junior synonym of O. longicollis

Thanks a lot, John!
As a non-expert I feel happy about the right track.

Should be Ozirhincus anthemidis
based on host plant, color, and small occiput.
