Thank you for their identification. Grin
With your guidance I edit the title.
Except dissenting opinion, I guess, as Trichopoda pennipes , I can upload to gallery.

Best wishes, José Marín.

Just to inform our readers:

Trichopoda is a neotropical /nearctic genus.
This species has established itself in Europe, starting in Italy and a second wave starting in Girona, Spain.
The species is now well established and quite common in Spain, southern France and spreading to the east.

I took one near the Dordogne River in France last month (latitude 44.86 deg). I wonder if it has been recorded further North yet?

This should be a male. Females lack orange on the wing and usually have a dark-tipped abdomen.

In America, these flies enjoy feeding on Daucus carota and I'm sure they are happy to be in Europe where the plant is native.
