Found this guy on the floor at work! I used the CCBER key for insect orders and got 1A -> 2A -> 3A to identify it as Order Diptera. Then I used the picture Dipteran key to identify it as first suborder Brachycera and then family Syrphidae based on the wings and distinct striping on the back. The shape of the stripes is consistent with Eupeodes fumipennis.

Oh boy, here's another trip down the Syrphini rabbit hole. I think. Here's where I am at:

Antenna aren't black, so it's not E. grossulariae. Abdominal markings aren't quite right for M. laxus, and wing venation curvature doesn't match anyway. Lacking the black abdominal margin for E. fumipennis.

It COULD be S. rubesii, especially with the yellow hind leg, but the stripes don't look quite right. That species is noted as "difficult to identify from photos," though...

This one just looks different than the other ones I have seen so far. The stripe on the face seems quite broad. The aspect of the stripes on the tergites is also different than other I have photographed. I wonder whether this one could indeed be P. genualis.
