Hello Thomas, Anopheles is correct (rather claviger than plumbeus), but I'm afraid we cannot go to species level without a dorsal view.

Dear Eric,

thank you!

Unfortunately, she flew away before I was able to take another photo.

Best regards,

Without seeing the wings and wether they have spots or not I think it is hard to rule out maculipennis s.l.
