Dear Forum!
I photographed these flies between 18-05-2021 and 30-05-2021, about 2km east of Profitis Ilias. I think they are Choerades loewi. (I had a hard time with this name, because Engel's paper refers to it as Laphria dimidiata, presently a valid name for an Indian spesies Cool )

Greetings,
Henrik

Females:

(First in copula)
