I photographed this fly in Bazzano (AQ), Italy on July 13th 2020. I think it is a Bombyliidae (maybe genus Anthrax?), but is it possible to identify the species just from this photo?

ESant attached the following image:

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
