I photographed this fly in the Sorgenti del Fiume Vera Nature Reserve (AQ), Italy, on October 18th 2020. I'm not even sure of the family it belongs to. Is it possible to identify the genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Molophilus sp. (Limoniidae), female
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.
