namely aeneus: http://agrozoo.ne...nus-aeneus
namely sepulchralis: http://commons.wi...ext=Search

I don't see much difference. How to tell them apart ?

The fact is they're not always easy - it looks like both sites have included at least one misidentified picture. [Never trust any picture captions except Diptera.info!TumbsUp] In aeneus, the eyes of the male meet on the frons, in sepulchralis they are separate. In females, the eyes of aeneus are bare in the lower half, those of sepulchralis are entirely hairy. E.aeneus tends to be larger and less "wrinkly" than sepulchralis, and sepulchralis often has dull patches on the tergites, while aeneus is always shiny. In Britain, aeneus is a coastal species, while sepulchralis is associated with freshwater.

The coastal vs. non-coastal distinction is not absolute, and it can sometimes be very difficult to know whether hairs are on the eyes or just around them (I can't decide on this photo). Having said that, this specimen does look more like sepulchralis, and was one of the misidentified specimens I referred to.

The part that got deleted is "longer, dark median stripe on thorax"

You are correct, the copula also is phragmitidis. Corrected in the Gallery.
