Thread subject: :: Episyrphus from Hong Kong

Below picture shows two Episyrphus females photographed at the same location in Nov 2023.
The left one has a more "petiolate" abdomen than the right one.
Sternite markings for both individuals are similar.
Could the left "petiolate" one be a special morph of the right, more commonly shaped one?
