Hello,
This November 11, 2019 in the south of France.
8.5 mm - 10.5 mm total with wings.
Unlike other Syrphidae which still fly in this season, this one keeps its wings closed at rest and when it eats.

Hello Liliane,

I am not sure, whether the yellow spots on the abdomen are triangular (then it should be a female of Melanostoma scalare) or rectangular (in this case it should be a female of Platycheirus sp.).
Best regards,
Jürgen

Hello and thank you very much Jürgen,
On this picture, we can see a little better the yellow spots but I can't say their exact shapes.

I am also not sure, but it seems to me more like Platycheirus. In Melanostoma the spots look like on the picture below.
