Hi Karsten, Eliozeta, I think, and probably helluo.

Iā€™d say female pellucens.
Elongated third antennal segment, largely thickened arista.

And helluo is not listed for Denmark yet - and my helluo is a pellucens, too!

All's well that ends well !

By the way, helluo is known from northern Poland, so it just might occur in DK.

Helluo is more yellow on abdomen (but very sexual dimorph: so be very sure to compare similar gender)
