Hello all,

Would it be possible to identify this female Syrphidae? (Genus, Species)?

Those pictures were taken in a marsh near home (Quebec, near Vermont).







Thanks alot :)

Michel-

I believe your Syrphidae is a member of the genus Eristalis. I don't have any idea to species but this link may help.
