Syrphidae 'Flower Fly'

Syrphidae 'Flower Fly'
Pocaterra Cirque, Kananaskas Country, Alberta, Canada
July 25, 2009
Can anyone suggest a genus for this Flower Fly, Syrphidae on Valerian sitchensis 'Northern Valerian'in an alpine meadow.

Moved from Syrphini.

Moved from ID Request.

Tribe Syrphini
Genus is either Eupeodes (I'm leaning in this direction) or Syrphus. Likely, Gerard can and will sort this one out.

Thank you Ron.
