I believe this is a Bee Fly. Can anyone identify the species! Thanks.

Moved from ID Request.

Palpada vinetorum
Palpada vinetorum ... the light is bad for identification but this is Palpada vinetorum. The mid femur is in shadow but is broadly orange toward tip, R1 vein orange at base, hind tarsi orange ( can be black in vinetorun but always black in agrorum and alhambra ), the right hind tibia can be seen to be slightly flattened. Light makes it difficult to see if the scutellum has a paler rim. Such features not found in Palpada agrorum.

Reminds me of Palpada:
