Hello Gerold, white hair in the face under the antenna: C. femorata. Other features for me not visible.

Greetings, Eric

Hallo Danny, vielen Dank für Deine sachkundige Hilfe. Ich habe mich bei der Zuordnung sehr schwer getan. Da habe ich leider weder Dein Wissen noch Deine Erfahrung. Bei uns am Rande des Nordschwarzwaldes (Garten inmitten von Streuobstwiesen - Südwestlage) kommen meist mehrere Raubfliegenarten gleichzeitig vor.
Viele Grüße
