I saw these flies on a hedge (probably Prunus lusitanica) in the utmost South of the Netherlands in April 2022.
Can someone tell me with species or genus this is? Thank you.

Best regards,
Annemiek van Dijk

Thank you Jan Maca. It seems to have the flat-topped scutellum. I did not recognize it because of the rear appendices but I have learned now that those are pheromone sacks, so this would be a male Thaumatomyia (maybe T. notata?)
