I've been wrestling with this for a couple of days now. Looks like a Mydaea, but keys like a Phaonia. Or possibly something in the Azelini (It has crossed frontal bristles). Or ... !!! No doubt I'm misinterpreting something or making a stupid assumption. All help much appreciated!

It's a female Thricops. You forgot to mention the location...
If it is from Europa, my guess would be T. albibasalis.

Thanks, Stephane

No idea how I managed to skip hind coxae! After that everything falls into place.

Pretty close to albibasalis. I think its sudeticus, with dusted prementum and black palps. Arista also pubescent only. Not entirely happy with the prealar:notopleural2 ratio but with the other characters I think the apparently more common (Scotland) sudeticus is a better candidate. Ill post some more pics to the thread later.

Thanks again
Ali

Thanks for the feedback. It seems the frons has interfrontals on the firsts picture, that supports T. sudeticus too. Wink
Stephane.
