I saw this little fly on the way back from taking steam train pix. I had only my kit lens with me and had to rely on the camera flash as well. As far as I can see in the 'book' it is very much like a female of that species.

Looks more like Melanostoma scalare female to me. Characteristic triangular spots on tergites 3 and 4?
