Moved
Moved from subgenus Xylota.

Moved
Moved from Syrphid Flies.

I think Xylota subgenus Xylot
I think Xylota subgenus Xylota, but some of these flies can be hard to tell from Chalcosyrphus. Check for whether the metasternum is haired (example here) since you have the specimen in hand. (bare is Xylota, haired is Chalcosyrphus)

Moving to subgenus now, since I'm pretty sure of the ID based on the abdominal pattern.

Syrphidae, rather
Moved from ID Request.
