Syritta

The last picture does look to have a more swollen hind femur and may well be a Syritta.

Comment

Although femora is marginally swollen, looking at other images the Syritta is significantly swollen. Both species seem to have the same confusing attribute of swollen femora.
I think your original ID is correct.
Thanks for help.
