I saw this fly hovering around some flowers and photographed it once it landed. Any help in identifying is appreciated.

Please read the comment attached to the other picture.
This is a male (eyes touch!) of Ocyptamus sp. not Baccha elongata!

Flower fly
This is a flower fly in the family Syrphidae. I want to say it is in the genus Bacca, but not certain.
