Hi all,

on 14th June 2020 I found this robberfly. I am confident it belongs to the Asilinae subfamily. Are you able to identify it further? Unfortunately I was not able to photograph its head from the front..

Thank you for your help in advance!

On this picture the wing veins can be seen quite well, and a little the abdomen

With the key https://waarnemin...ilidae.pdf I arrive at Neoitamus cyanurus. Reinoud is asked to confirm.
You could write me an e-mail sometime (the last one was from 2018)...
