this seems baccha. I?ve seen there?s a gender of Bombyliidae, "Systropus" that has the same shape; it?doesn?t appear in fauna europaea but, is there any gender of bombyliidae with a similar shape here in europe?

From the wing venation it is clear that it is Baccha.

Systropus is laterally flattened not horizontally.
It also has long antennae, unlike Baccha and related hover flies.
The legs are much longer.
I think Systropus is an oriental genus, but I might well be wrong.

Systropus and close related genera are in North America, South America, Australia, SE Asia, India and South Africa, but not in the tropical Africa or most of the Palaearctic (they are in Korea). There is one species in Israel, Egypt, that is the closest this group comes to Europe...
