this syrphidae larva decimated the aphids on my Oleander bush in our garden (Furth im Wald, Bavaria, Germany, 29.05.2017). Is it possible to dermine it?

Hi Ingrid, from what I can see it's probably a Scaeva pyrastri (green, white stripe, cylindrical, not flattened... Key in Colour Guide to Hoverfly Larvae, Rotheray)
