Hi all,
since there is no approval, I have to assume it is only Urophora sp., correct?

Urophora cuspidata is living in different species of Centaurea and has much slender black stripes on wing.

Certainly Urophora congrua Loew male. Typically montane species as its host plant is.

Please upload pictures to the gallery, it is quite an uncommon in collections and on the photos.
