Size: 4.2 mm wing length
Found on Phalaris arundinacea.

With the added picture showin
With the added picture showing the rounded tubercle beneath the base of hind femur, this is Eumerus funeralis. It is very common in Europe where it is known under the synonym, Eumerus tuberculatus.
The base of the hind femora is free of hairs which is another good pointer.
