Hi again, I'm posting this picture I took in Crete, Greece. I found some information and I Think it is Milesia sp- But I really would like to identify it.

Volucella sp. to my eye. Looks like the common V. zonaria, which I believe should occur in Greece.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
