I photographed this fly near Campo Tures (BZ), Italy, 1000m a.s.l. on July 15th 2021. I think it is a Coenosia, but is it possible to identify its species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

In lowland I'd say C. mollicula. In Italian 1000 m I'm not sure.

Thank you! There were many specimens on low vegetation at the edge of a coniferous forest. If not C. mollicula, what are the other possible species?
