A Chloropid (I think) from Flitwick Moor, Beds

This little species is I think a Chloropid. It was swept by me from an area of Juncus effusus etc with Sphagnum spp and Polytrichum commune at Flitwick Moor in Bedfordshire, TL046353 on 2 June 2018. Unfortunately after I had taken just five images it flew and I therefore do not habve the specimen. I would be very grateful if anyone is possibly able to identify it from these images.

Many thanks

Alan

Agromyzidae - one of the Phytomyzinae, I think. I hesitate to suggest more from photos.

Many thanks Tony. It would certainly help if I could at least get the family right!
