found 23.05.2023, southwest Germany, Saarland, near a River, meadow,

My first tought was D. atricapilla female but the yellow tarsomeres on first an second legs makes me insecure. I also considered that it could be pollen but it seems very regular and there are no one on the last tarsi.
Of course, a sharper picture would have helped but wasnt possible, sorry!

Thanks a lot in advance for your help and estimation

I'm pretty sure that it is D. atricapilla - the colour of the tarsi is probably based on reflections and the blurry photo.
No other Dioctria matches better.
