cothurnata female, I'd say. Colour of the legs, combined with the vague idea that the 'silverish' stripe at the side of the thorax is short..
Check some collectionmaterial, I'd say :-)

I would say Dioctria hyalipennis: the silverish stripe is on the side of the thorax is complete, the femora are yellow and the coxae are dark (D. linearis has yellow coxae).
