Answer

His full name is:

 الوليد بن محمد المُوَقَّري مولى بني أمية

He has been declared extremely weak (Matruk) by the Hadith masters, even more so when his student (mentioned in the chain in question): Abu Tahir Al-Maqdisi reports from him.

Refer: Tadhibut Tahdhib, vol.11 pg.149, Taqribut Tahdhib, number: 7453 and Al-Kashif of Dhahabi, number: 6091.
