Hi Günter, I'm quite sure it's a male Suillia but difficult for me to name the species. A possible candidate may be S. notata.
Greetings, Eric

Thank you, Eric, I agree.
After excluding a few other clearly different members of Suillia, S. notata seems the most probable ID. I remember that the wings had no conspicious dark pattern. And the strong and spaced bristles on femur 1 may be characteristic.
Kind regards - Günter
