I photographed this fly near Campo Tures (BZ), Italy, 900m a.s.l. on July 15th 2021. I'm not even sure of the family it might belong to. Could you help me identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Thank you very much Roger! So it is a Lauxaniidae... I was looking for this species in the wrong families (mainly Sciomyzidae and similar).
