Do you recognize this name from KG76?

This is the back of a photo an old eBay auction. The photo shows the rudder of Ju-88C(?) with an impressive score. Can anyone decipher the pilot's name and has anyone seen any other photos of this aircraft?

The text is

The pilot was Oblt Benno Herrman, 4./KG 76

Hermann was Staka of 4/76 but F1+BX does not seem to be consistent with that staffel and position also the Werk Number would seem to be 360223 which is a Bernburg built C-6. Any further info?
