Thread subject: :: Stratiomyidae to be identified

I think this is a Stratiomyidae: it looks like Chloromyia formosa, but is about half as long. What do you think it could be?

You didn't mention the location - I think it's a male Microchrysa polita.

Can’t argue with that, given the support.

Thank you very much, sorry for the forgetfulness...
The location is Agugliano (AN), Italy, 17/04/2021
