Postabdomen is too large for Cylindromyia. I initially thought Hemyda but 6mm sounds small to me and the eye profile doesn't look right. It'll be one of the Phasiines that I rarely come into contact with Smile

Thanks a lot for help! I didn`t recognize that it was a tachinid because subscutellum was so diffuse. I will look clooser at Phasiinae ...

It is a Besseria.

Difficult to say more

Many thanks for help to find the correct genera!

It is Besseria melanura according to "Die Raupenfliegen Mitteleuropas" (1994). Seems to be a relatively exclusive species for sandy areas in SE Sweden. The other Besseria-species recorded in Sweden is B. anthophila.

Best regards
