possibly Xylotini

This hoverfly (we think it is) was photographed at Thurlbear in Somerset on 28th Augst 2017. It looks similar to Chalcosyrphus eupodes but someone familiar with that insect thought it should have been much more solid, while the thoracic stripes were dissimilar.

Looks like Ferdinandea cuprea (Cheilosiini)
