Either depressa or quadrimaculata - difficult to be sure from this angle. Think it is chunky enough to be the first of them.

And has pale antehumeral stripes.

quadrimaculata also lacks the pale stripes on top of the thorax which depressa has (one of these pale stripes can clearly be seen in the photo).
