This is probably Laphria bomboides, she seems to have lost some hair at the tip of the abdomen.

Thank you very much for your ID!
The specimen was collected and stored by a coleopterists, that is probably the reason for the lost hair...

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
