Moved from Helophilus based on John's comment below. Thanks.

Helophilus fasciatus
Only two species of Helophilus have an orange stripe on the face (as opposed to black). Of them, only the male of H. fasciatus has a gap between the eyes about as wide as the bases of the antennae (wider in females and H. latifrons). The large black area between the eyes is also consistent. It is smaller in H. latifrons.
