Berlin - May 2018

I think that this is Empididae Hilara species. I am seeking confirmation.
Also, anyone know where i can find keys to this genus? there are too many options in Germany.

Thank You for your time.

I found a pdf entitled "A taxonomic revision of the hilara maura group in Europe" by Chvala but there are many more possibilities. Anyone can help?

the terminalia is strange and very dark. I will try to clear it in lactic acid for better photos. I will also examine it to see how to dissect it for appropriate material.

using the following references:
A taxonomic revision of the hilara maura group - Chvala
The Hilara species (Diptera, Empididae) of Switzerland - Chvala

I arrive at Hilara maura, the most common species, especially in May.

Thanks, Paul. I always appreciate a confirmation. I am new to this field and still a bit diffident.

I notice that we don't have this species in the gallery. I'll upload some pics...
