Can anyone help with the ID of the species shown in the attached pictures? The photos were taken on 30th July 2016 in Préfailles (France, Dept. Loire Atlantique). The insect was feeding on flowering plants on a sand dune neighbouring a natural beach, about 5 m above the sea level.

Looks like a Melitta male.
