Hi, I photographed this small Tachinidae in Hundsheim, eastern Lower Austria in very warm and dry biotop on August 7, 2022. Much smaller than Cylindromiya (at least the ones I have seen so far).
Thanks in advance and best regards,
Eckhart Derschmidt attached the following image:

Parasitoid flies are very variable in size depending on the size of their host.
