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?

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
