Found this on my archive disk. Looks similar to images in Chalcosyrphus genus.

Perhaps this one -
Chalcosyrphus curvaria (Curran, 1941). See specimen from Minnesota at Syrphidae Community Website.

Moved from Chalcosyrphus.

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

A male Chalcosyrphus sp.!

Moved from Unidentified Fungus-ridden Flies.

Oops! Sorry about that! :)

Moved from Flies.

Moved from ID Request.

Thanks Ron
Should have thought of that!

Suggest you move the post to Flies
It's more likely to attract expert attention there. (For sure, it's a syrphid, but I wouldn't put it there just yet.)
