a Cylindrotomatidae, and it looks a bit like Cylindrotoma distinctissima, but in your area, maybe another species ?

sorry, forgot to add that it is not Triogma, Diogma or Phalacrocera. I meant to say that it is Cylindrotoma, but as I'm not familiar with the faunistics of this genus in your area, I'm not sure about the species-identity.
