Hi, I have taken pictures of this Asilidae in Schönower Heide north of Berlin (Germany).
When applying the key of Wolf, Gebel and Geller-Grimm (Die Raubfliegen Deutschlands) I find Machimus gonatistes but with uncertainty.
Could you please confirm or correct?
Date: 15-Jul-2022
Place: Schönower Heide (52.68630, 13.5212596)
Sand grassland and heath.

Thank you and best regards
