as mentioned earlier, the long head (lower, rear corner extended backwards) suggests Cephalodromia, but i will put it no stronger than that. i do not think it is Cyrtosia (but would not be astonished if i was proved wrong), S?guy is not much help for Iberian species, or indeed French! His E perfectus is presumably Empidideicus hungaricus Thalhammar, 1911; his C. cinerea is Apolysis cinerea (in a different Family, Bombyliidae, Usiinae. If you want more confident identifications then you MUST collect specimens.
