Heute fand ich diese Fliege an einem Waldwirtschaftsweg in der Randvegetation auf Ackerkratzdistel, ich vermute, es ist eine Schwebfliege. Kann mir jemand mitteilen um welche Art es sich handelt?
Funddaten: Deutschland, Nordrhein-Westfalen, D-59519 Möhnesee, auf einer Doldenblüte,
Freundliche Grüße

Today I found this fly near a forest path sitting on the blossom of creeping thistle, I think, it is a hoverfly. Can somebody tell me, which species that is ?

Eristalis but I am out of touch on the species and their (current) names.
