Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Empididae - Hilara?

Hi,
Two days ago, at dusk, I met an Empidid on a Salix shrub by a small stream. As the light was already too dim for the camera to focus, only a few photos were of use. I think the female is a Hilara, and although this is a difficult genus, I would like to give it a try. Maybe the identification can be narrowed down a bit. The locality is southwest Germany, 20 km west of Stuttgart.
Many thanks for helpful hints! Sundew
