Accurate miniature drawings of Joris Hoefnagel show various (often recognifsable) insects from central Europe. In this case he confronted two flies and a weevil (evidently Rhynchites auratus/bacchus). The left fly depicts an asiilid female (which one?, possible to say something?) but that on right looks more like an impossibly big (ca. 2 cm) empidid with strange yellow antennae. Any suggestions what could it be?

The fly on the right is Molobratia teutonus. The fly on the left is an asiline, perhaps Tolmerus or something similar.
