I photographed this fly near Barrea (AQ), Italy, 1200m a.s.l. on May 22nd 2022. I think it is a Tephritidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Looks like a male Trypeta zoe to me, but the specialists will correct me if I'm wrong about that.
