Please, help me with the identification of this hoverfly. It was collected on blossoming Crataegus lit by the last sunlight in the evening.

Specimen data: May, 30, 2021, Russia, Moscow, edge of a mixed forest.

Body length: 14mm. Wingspan: 26mm.

Thank you in advance.

With that face profile and the pale bands on the abdomen it should be Criorhina asilica.
