What do you think about this fly, seen last week in Belgium ?
I thought first Xylophagidae but I don't see any black pterostigma.
Thanks for your help

Hi Eric,

Not Xylophagidae but Asilidae.

I think I saw something similar in another forum and from what I could see on that picture I thought D. rufipes but I am certain I will be corrected if need be. I have not checked these images with a key.
