found this individuum near Lake Neusiedel in Burgenland, Austria.
The head being completely yellow, would this exclude C. rosae/nigricornis?

Font Color
All requests are from the urban area of Vienna, if not otherwise stated.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

It is difficult to estimate the colour of vertex and occiput... However, this does not help. We need to see more details, compare, e.g., https://diptera.i...d_id=55693. There is a key in German in https://diptera-i...(1988).pdf. It gives a good impression of the characters needed.
