no, pattern on thorax is off.

Should be C. auriceps.

Thank you very much, Theo!
C. auriceps is not listed for Niedersachsen yet (only C. brassicaria and C. interrupta so far). I'll try to collect some Cylindromyia again this year.
In 2021 I collected 3 specimen, I'll take a closer look at them soon.
best regards,

Well, I definitely expect auriceps so far east (yes, it is Niedersachsen, but almost the most eastern point) and yes, this definitely looks like auriceps.

So I think you have proven auriceps does occur in Niedersaksen :)

Very nice :)
Indeed, the place is nearly as far as you can get to the east in Niedersachsen.
