Moved from Tachytes.

This is a female Tachytes distinctus. (widespread) Pretty! -- 10 flagellomeres = ♀

Moved from ID Request.

I'm thinking
something in/near Tachytes:

The experts will be able to say for sure.

I am no expert but...
...shouldn't the basal segment of the antennae be yellow? And the eyes look a little too close together. It may help to post a dorsal view.
