It is Xylophagus, but I need to work on the species. Looks like female compeditus.

Yes it is ater / compeditus.
As you know, these is a quarrel on the correct name (see Stubbs).

Hello Konrad & Theo,

Actually Chandler 1998 cleared up the confusion about the correct name: it is Xylophagus ater Meigen, 1804.
An online identification key to species is available here: http://www.online...p?key_no=3

Greetings,

Ectemnius
