today I caught a comparatively large hoverfly in our bathroom. I think, it could be a female of Xylota sylvarum, but I have never encountered that species before, so I'm not sure. Is the determination correct?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), inside the house, bathroom, 23.06.2024, app. 12-14 mm

Greetings, Uli

I think, female X. sylvarum is correct.
