Dolichopodidae - is it Syntormon denticulatum?

I still have images of this fly from many years ago, but I see it never got onto NBN - no idea why not.

Howver I think I've just taken some careless images of what I think is the same species - Syntormon denticulatum, and would you believe this is the best one. Oh dear! I think I was having an off-day.
Any opinions, apart from the quality of the image?

Yes, more likely pallipes from what can be seen of hind tarsi.
