Why not Scaeva selenitica? Do you have more pictures, a frontal view perhaps?

Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately I was only able to take one photo. On closer comparison, I can say that Scaeva selenitica is very likely correct.

With the swollen, hairy frons, I would definitely say Scaeva selenitica.
