Apolysis, Bombyliidae from Rhodes

I found this female Apolysis near Faliraki on 26_05_2019. Greek and Turkish checklists only list Apolysis fumipennis as occuring in these countries.
Apolysis pusilloides was described relatively recently from Iran and is known from Greece, too, but females of that sp.
has mostly yellowish legs (as does A. sappanosi, described from Hungary.) The fly in the pics has completely dark legs. So I think this should be A. fumipennis. But the name "fumipennis" bothers me a bit,
since the wings of thes specimen are more or less clear.

Can someone help me with this fly?

Thanks for any comment in advance!

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
