I photographed this fly near Crognaleto (TE), Italy, 800m a.s.l. on August 17th 2022. I think it is a Dolichopodidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

Definitely Campscinemus curvipes (matches all specific characters).
