I found this fly in a mixed forest. Is ID possible? I guess Thereva nobilitata.

it's not nobilitata.. black halter knobs, broad calli high on the head, two dc...
To know identity you will have to collect (or a very good picture of the setae on legs), but it's close to handlirschi/inornata.

Thereva on pictures :-) always fun and the internet is devoid of erroneous identifications...

see you

thank you very much for answer and correction.
I looked again for the pictures. Unfortunately, the setae on the femora are hidden.
