It looks to be a Neomochtherus or Aneomochtherus species, taking into account the red antennae it might be something close to Aneomochtherus flavicornis

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

No idea what happened but it is corrected
