Could this be a male of Laphria flava? Caught near Dornbirn/Vorarlberg (Western Austria) last year in July at an altitude of about 1200m. Sorry that the photo isn't good!

Hi G?nter,

It certainly looks like a Laphria. However I know that there are several species of this genus in Central Europe and I have never seen any other than L. flava. But don't worry, I agree with Sarah, if you have a little patience someone who knows a lot more about Asilidae (like Mark van Veen) will be able to say more about it.
