What comes into my head is Stratiomyidae (soldier flies) - thei larvae are quite similar. But lets wait for other opinions Wink

Definitely, I think it is one of the Sarginae with Microchrysa and Chloromyia as most likely candidates (former has the best chances I think) but I cannot rule out Sargus or Beridinae (Beris or Chorisops) on the basis of this picture.
