Looks very much like Tolmerus cf atricapillus, male. In march? That would be very early for the rest of Europe. According to Fauna Europaea the species is not known from Portugal.

This year in Portugal there was a very clear decrease/waning number and diversity in all insect orders. Fewer tachinids than usual, for example. Fennel flowers are very scarce of insects these days.
