Hi Jürgen, I think it's a male Phyto melanocephala (thorax 3 vittae, petiole on R1).
Greetings, Eric

Thanks a lot, Eric! I was also thinking about Rhinophoridae, but the Calyptrae seemed rather big to me.
Best regards,
Jürgen

? I didn't mention Melanomya nana here. I posted it in another thread: https://www.dipte..._id=104408
Thanks for confirming Phyto melanocephala.
Best regards,
Jürgen
