Is it possible to ID the species?

This is probably Dioctria sudetica or rufipes. I think you can't separate them based on a single picture. The black occiptal hairs and bristles are often used as a character to separate sudetica from rufipes. But in my opinion that character is not reliable as I have many specimens of rufipes from southern France with black occipital bristles.
