I found the Tabanidae (about 18 mm) on 18 May 2018 in northeast of Bavaria/ Germany.
What genus is it? Is more possible?
Best regards
Azuro attached the following image:

It is the female of Hybomitra lundbecki or tropica.
Colour of antenna suggests tropica, dark notopleural lobe suggests lundbecki.

So there is something rotten...

Notopleural lobe is shaded, maybe yellow ?
Any more pictures available ?
