Am I OK with Nephrotoma appendiculata for this pair? I know there are several similar species and am not sure if this photo is good enough to be sure of species. Taken 20 June, central lowland France, on the wooded banks of a former sand extraction pit now filled with water.

I support Nephrotoma cornicina based upon Oosterbroek.
