8.9.22 in Jyväskylä, Finland

My best guess is female Eupeodes latifasciatus (compare https://www.flick...787790503/).

Thanks Claudia, but latifasciatus flies in Finland between may-july.

My first thought was Didea, but wing venation doesn't fit - Didea has a distinct loop in R4+5. According to Speight (https://pollinato...counts.pdf), the flight period is May/September with peaks in June and August (plus April and October in southern Europe). So it might be a late one...

And Didea's uppermost yellow spot is oblique.
I think that Eupeodes is right, but which one
