Is this the male counterpart of the female G. nudifrons here: https://diptera.i...ost_430942? Same time, same place.

No. Looks like either dolycoridis or clavatum.

Could you guide me a bit here? I used Tschorsnig and excluded *G. clavatum* due to the lack of three dusted spots in front of the scutellum. I can, however, follow up in the next step, where a dusted line extends over the thorax towards the scutellum tip.
Here is an additional photo showing this nicely, so would it be a good call to name it *G. dolycoridis*?
