for sure is not L.hoffmannseggi or L.ichneumonea. the antennae are too long.
again is not L.fulviventris (face is not black)
not L.nigrifrons (scutellum is not black)

i don't know if on the face is a black median line, if yes is L.sylvatica
if not L.albiseta or L.algerica
L.albiseta mesonotum anterior largely black
L.algerica mesonotum anterior with some black, and a median line that go all the way until at scutellum

this is after Seguy (Faune de France)

hope this helps you,

well I collect in those places since 2005, and it is perfectly clear there were several families I did not see this year, or even the rather common Tachinidae, for the current year I only saw dozens.
