South of France, August 30, 2023.
It is set on Ivy and measures about 10 - 11 mm.
I was only able to take this one photo.
I think it's a Syrphidae?
Thank you for your help in identifying it
Liliane D attached the following image:

Thanks Carlo for the identification and sorry for the confusion with a Syrphidae.
Can the topic be moved to the adult diptera forum?

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
