Is it possible to tell which genus and eventually spieces this male with 9 mm body are?
Looks something like quadra or hygropetrica. Can anyone tell?

Thanks for your help in advance

Dicranomyia stigmatica from the look at the stigma.

I'm afraid that suggested stigmatica is quite far from right (colouration is way off for most D. (Idiopyga) spp., being too bright, reddish prescutum with distinct median stripe and scutal lobes partially darkened, too). That's D. (Dicranomyia) handlirschi Lackschewitz, 1928.
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.
