anybody can advise me some bibliography (or provide .pdf) for the identification of Western Palearctic Therevidae, especially for Southern Europe and Mediterranean area?

not sure.. but I doubt there is any key for mediterranean therevids. I know that there were some therevids experts in Spain and they not did see almost any therevids.
Nevertheless, try this genus key : http://home.hccne...vidae.html

the Lindner Book for Bombyliidae (145e) has also "Omphralidae" (Scenopinidae) and Therevidae Palaeartic keys (I remember a reference from one from Madeira) but not really new...

Although out of date, it would be worth downloading Seguy's 1926 Diptères Brachycères (Faune de France)
