Dates: Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Schenefeld near Hamburg, in an uncultivated area, 25 msm, Outsidefoto: kuv, 19th of April 2012, about 11 am. I think it could be Melangyna cincta or Epistrophe melanostoma, but I'm only an amateur. ID possible? Please help.
Best regards

With the triangular yellow spots on T2 it should be Fagisyrphus cinctus.

Thank you, Gerard, that's very good for obviousness.
