This might be Neoascia podagrica, but these flies are tricky. To differentiate between Neoascia and Sphegina one needs to see the wing venation.

Neoascia podagrica has darkened cross veins that form a right angle (see https://www.flick...638744863/ and compare with a Sphegina in http://syrphidae..../file/3049). I think we can see three straight dark lines here, so I would prefer that species. Labeling the pics "Neoascia cf. podagrica" should not be too wrong!

Hi Sundew,

keep in mind that there are additional Neoascia with darkened cross veins. Par example N. interrupta which has a short third antennal segment and three pairs of spots (tergites 2-4 each one pair).
Very best regards

Nice to hear from you, dear Piet - I have already missed you! Indeed I overlooked N. interrupta that is not comparatively illustrated in my book and usually looks more colourful than N. podagrica (see https://www.flick...383858487/). There seem to be yellow spots at the basal corners of tergite 4, so "N. cf. interrupta" would possibly be closer to the truth Smile.

Dear Sundew, I missed you too! This female of Neoascia is indeed belonging to interrupta. I would expect this species in Poland in marshy areas surounding larger rivers and lakes or near Baltic Sea.
Very best regards
Piet

You can delete the "cf." Grin Piet's identification is reliable without doubt.
