Not sure, but remarkably long antenna gives impression of Phaonia longicornis.

upload extra picts: showing hind tibia bristles more clear - and halters not yellow but light (and out of focus) compare to this thread: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=5&thread_id=30213

Ole, I just wanted to correct my reply: I mean Ph. angulicornis
As for your doubts.
1. Now we are sure that it is Phaonia.
2. I'll compare your images with museums specimens (we have a large material of Ph. angulicornis and reply again next week.

I'm looking forward to it.

I'd say that your Phaonia is not angulicornis.
Female Ph. angulicornis looks as on photo.

Then for now Phaonia sp. - Too bad I didn't catch it.
thanks for the photo of P. angulicornis - and for trying!
