This looks to be Spilomyia sp. but the only one listed on Fauna Europea for Crete is S. digitata who's bands appear to be much thicker. Your thoughts would be most appreciated.

Having problems with file upload - hope the picture appears either here or as an attachment Shock

I think it is a Lomatia sp male (Bombyliidae).
