Badem, RLP, Germany. Photos of Fly captured in my garden 19 Jun 2020. I estimate it is about 15mm.

Hi Jim, it's hard to see with the white background, but the crossveins are darkened and the hind femora are completely yellow. Conspicuus should have apically black hind femora and the wings are without shaded veins.
I think it's a female R. vitripennis.

Greetings, Eric

@beateSenf you can check the coincident threads with your species and try to write to whom identified them

Hallo, I have a question. Are there any hidden rules in this forum? Do you have to upload spectacular flies to get answers? As soon as the inquiries slide to page two or further, they rest gently

21.01.21 08:58
No idea what happened but it is corrected
