Some days ago I watched this medium-sized brown Empis with a lot of stripes on the thorax. I am not sure what species it is, so help is greatly appreciated! The locality was southwestern Germany, 20 km west of Stuttgart.
Thanks in advance, Sundew
Sundew attached the following image:

Oops - I should have known it! I compared with my photos of E. livida but they seemed to have only three stripes on the thorax. Well, may be it's a matter of exposure to light and reflection...
Many thanks, Paul!

128 in the New World as of 2009. Should be around 140 worldwide depending on how you split.
