In the south of France, on 6 June 2022.
The body is 5 mm long.
Thank you for your help with identification

I guess it could be an Anthrax sp. (varius?).

Thank you very much Eric,
In the meantime, I also thought of Anthrax varius because of the small size and the spots on the wings.
But in photos from previous years, I did not have this heavy hairiness on the thorax and abdomen. So I wasn't sure.
