Syrphid fly? - Eupeodes - female

Syrphid fly? - Eupeodes - Female
Port Sanilac, Sanilac County, Michigan, USA
November 8, 2009
Size: 10 mm
I think it is in the family Syrphidae. Can anyone concur with that?


Moved from Eupeodes.


Moved from Syrphid Flies.

Eupeodes sp.

Moved from ID Request.

Syrphidae, yes
And I would say in the tribe Syrphini. The genera are very hard to ID. The head is so dark that I can't even be sure of the sex, although it looks like a female.
