1. Probably Villa venusta, not hottentotta.
2. Very worn: Villa venusta? Definitely not hottentotta though, widely infusctae wing and silver tegula (small disk at wing base)
3. Probably hottentotta.

Thank you very much, Kahis. There was no protest of other members, so I will use your suggestion to rename my photo folders. The first two pics should belong to the same species. There were a lot specimen of this fly on Heracleum - only one older (?) "naked specimen". Best regards Frank
