I photographed this fly in Campo Imperatore (AQ), Italy, 1400m a.s.l. on August 12th 2021. I think it is an Heleomyzidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Looks very much like the Gymnomus caesius which I photographed [too many years ago] and stuck in the Gallery...
