females cannot be distinguished, as we learned from many threads here (just search the archive!). Yours looks peculiar: the head tells us "female", but the slender, parallel-sided abdomen looks rather "male-ish". Either way there is no chance for a species name, thus the long silence...

Thank you Sundew :) it's very nice to get this answer. As the fly looks really peculiar I thought that this reason is perhaps a chance for a name ...
Best regards Kuv
