I photographed this fly on Corno Grande (TE), Italy, 2600m a.s.l. on July 28th 2023. I think it is a Rhinophoridae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

Rhinophoridae is correct and I think it could be a female Stevenia cf. deceptoria.
