Today I took photos of these two mating flies. It seems to be a difficult species to identify, but with the male and the female, maybe we can say something ? Close to Bombylius minor/cinerascens or even B. posticus ?

Seen in Parc des Beaumonts, Montreuil, Seine-Saint-Denis, Île-de-France, France.

Length : around 10 mm per specimen
