Hmmm, not Chrysotoxum cautum! It's abdomen and also the coloration is different. Most important: female cautum has a membranous strip on tergite 6 which divides this tergite in two parts. This animal hasn't got it, and it would have been visible on the picture.
Also the antennae, although not very well visible, are not those of cautum. In this case antennal segment 3 seems shorter than segments 1 and 2 together.
So, this is more likely a female Chrysotoxum verralli!

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

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