Hi Morten, "De Vliegenfamilies met drie voetkussentjes" (Zeegers, Schulten) leads me to male T. bromius but the upper ommatidia are not distinctly bigger and the antenna is completely yellow. So I doubt if I used the key correctly.

It is a female T. maculicornis.

I agree but I like it!
And in this case I should have cleaned my glasses 🤓 before deciding between ♀ and ♂!
