Without a lateral picture, I dare not say. Note the very angular inner margin of calypter (“Sturmiini”)

Thanks, Theo

I can't find a complete list of species in Sturmiini (I suppose splitted from Goniini), here:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/Browser/wwwtax.cgi?mode=Undef&id=179458&lvl=3&keep=1&srchmode=1&unlock
The only european genus is Sturmia and the unique species Sturmia bella...
Which other genus could this be ?

I found it more similar to Blepharippa pratensis, which was determined by you from a collected specimen at the same area:

Sturmiini was in “ “, because it is no longer valid and split over bith Goniini and Eryciini.

Sturmia has the scutellum dark and is a late summer species....
Pity we can’t see the hind tibiae.

It does resemble Blepharipa pratensis and it might be this species, but somehow it “does not feel right”.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
