If you still have it,
it will likely feed on aphids and you can raise it to adulthood and we can know exactly which syrphid fly this is.

 
It's a
free larva, probably eating aphids as we speak. :-)

Moved from Unidentified Larvae and Puparia.

Moved from ID Request.

Not a caterpillar,
but rather the larva of a Syrphid Fly. Nice shots!

 
Larva.....hmmmm
Thanks!
