blowave, thank you for the opinion! I have no keys for Diptera, I don't see much difference between the two and now I really don't know... Is it important that on all photos of Scaeva dignota I found, dignotas have completely or almost completely light-yellow abdominal side of the body (while the one on my photo has large black spots on it)?http://denbourge.free.fr/Insectes_diptera_syrphidae_Scaeva_dignota.htm
