Eriozona syrphoides
Nederlands:Bontzweefvlieg
Deutsch:Bunte Pelzschwebfliege
Triberg im Schwarzwald (Baden-Württemberg), Germany; 23 July 2018.
The only bumblebee mimic in the Syrphinae, and a good one. It fooled a female Sicus ferrugineus, a conopid fly that parasitizes on Bumblebees, enough to chase this hoverfly!
