Platystoma it is, and it recalls P. lugubre (basitarsi red), but I don't know the Bulgarian species. The key https://img1.wsim...3414328806 asks for many characters that are not visible in the pictures - sorry! If Valery can't help, there is no chance...
Regards, Sundew

Yes, Claudia is right: Platystoma lugubre.
