This nice fly reminded me of a Cliorismia, but it isn't. The fermora have no yellow apices, and the genital is black. Van Veen's key (https://home.hccn...vidae.html) led to Pandivirilia melaleuca, but there is only few information available about this species, and the pictures I found show females. So it would be great to get a confirmation or correction of my ID! The location is a wood edge in southwestern Germany, about 20 km west of Stuttgart.
Thanks for help, Sundew

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
