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.

Yes that looks close. But what about e.g. L. flavipes - very similar appearance

You are right.
Limonia flavipes is quite similar and it is difficult to distinguish between flavipes and hercegovinae.
I used Peeters and Oosterbroek key:

https://ccw.natur..._2014c.pdf

This point:

The femur of hercegovinae has one dark ring.
The femus of flavipes with faint dark ring.

In this photo there is first hercegovinae then flavipes and then Vienna specimen.
I think there is one dark ring also in Vienna specimen.
But not 100% sure.

Thanks Esko,
I went through my shots in I think the leg ring is right for L.h., if the published discrimination is a reliable feature.
