Again, it looks like Platymyia fimbriata, but
* inner margin of calypter not darkened
* second (apparent first) segment of arista elongated.

Suggesting Paratryphera barbatula.

Check for ballonnish calypter and hairy barrette.

Thank you very much, Theo!
It seems that some species can appear in large numbers one year and next year they are almost impossible to find…
