Hello,
Here is a couple of fly from the Syrphidae family... She looks like Parasyrphus nigritarsis but I'm not so confident for I found the abdomen a little too broad...
Any idea / suggestion???
Thanks again for your great help!

Moved
Moved from Syrphini.
Confirmed by Ron Hemberger.

Moved
to guide page for now. I think it was pretty much buried in ID Request. Hopefully an expert will see it here.

 
I finally identify this syrph
I finally identify this syrphid as Syrphus vitripennis.

Here, the abdomen form, the pattern on it, the greenish color of the thorax and the femur of the last pair of legs being 3/4 black are caracteristic of this species.
