Not Strongygaster - the petiole on this one is too long. I think Rondania is close but I'd go for Graphogaster Smile Whatever it is, it is very interesting - should have been caught Wink

Not captured. I could only take pictures without a lot closer. Then he flew ...
I had never seen before. If I return to find ...

Best regards.

I am pretty sure it is a male Graphogaster vestita Wink It was found last year in Almeria, Chris and Theo IDed it in Diptera.info it and many pictures of it have been taken in the area this year. It is rather characteristic once you know it. It seems to be rather common in SE Spain.

Have a look at this thread:

Great picture! Gallery, please! Wink

Hello Piluca.!

I appreciate your confirmation. It is always my pleasure to add a new copy to my photo gallery.

Very interesting link attached. I had not seen the post.

By the way, Theo says That this species has a strong sexual dimorphism. And ChrisR, on this other, http://www.dipter...d_id=48080, which may be the female Graphogaster. Could you ask him to see Theo?.

Thanks for everything, Piluca.
Warm regards from southern Spain.

Graphogaster vestita seems an excellent ID to me. This species is rather common in the south. Otherwise, the genus is rare and more boreo-mountainous.

Very grateful for your opinion Theo.

And you think this, http://www.dipter...d_id=48080 could be another female this same species, or has nothing to do with it.?

Best regards.
