Found this fly on 21_05_2019 near Faliraki, Rhodes.
Is it possible to ID it based on this single shot?
Thanks for any help in advance!

Anthrax is correct. I do not think this is one of the commoner species I know. There are multiple Anthrax species in SE Europe that I have no idea how they look like sucj as francoisi, giselae, pelopeius, pilosulus...
