Is this Leucozona glaucia?
The specimen data: June, 24 2020, Russia, Moscow Region, Serpukhov City District, near Rodniki village, roadside, on Umbellíferae flowers.
I can make additional photos if any diagnostic characters are not visible.

On Photo 1, the fore tarsi look yellow rather than dark. In Western Europe, this would point to glaucia rather than laternaria (a rather small species of max 11 mms whereas glaucia is larger).
