Thank you Eric! Could be P. subventa? Phaonia rufiventris according Fauna Europaea is absent from Greece.

Hi Kostas, the Manual CE Muscidae (Gregor et al) says, that rufiventris goes eastwards to Syria ans western Siberia. P. rufiventris and P. subventa are very similar and to be sure, we need to see many bristles like presutural ac, arista, tibiae clearly. So maybe it's better to call it Phaonia sp.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner
