If I followed the key right this should be Tolmerus cingulatus with prey. But I am still learning.
Braunschweig, Northern Germany, 12.08.2021.

(The prey could be from Tachinidae like Ectophasia sp.)

I think it is an other Tolmerus sp. because the posterior side of the front femur is partly black and I can't see the ring on the middle tibia.

Thanks Reinoud!
So I have to check more pictures to find out the right species, if possible at all.
