Good evening,

here are two pictures of a robberfly unknown to me. So far I could not determine it yet. Particularly striking for me is the golden yellow pubescence on the front and rear rails.

Found in the outskirts of the city in southwest Germany. Body size about 20 mm. Found 2022-07-30.

Thanks for the help.

Do you have a lateral picture of the creature? As it is now I would guess Machimus cf intermedius.
