Syrphid larva? - Aphidoletes aphidimyza

Syrphid larva? - Aphidoletes aphidimyza
Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
July 14, 2019
In the middle of a large group of aphids on common milkweed that have been tended by ants for the last few weeks. In the garden this year, we have Toxomerus geminatus, T. marginatus, Allograpta obliqua, Eristalis transversa, Eristalis dimidiata, and Syritta pipiens if that's a help. Any guesses?
