Hoverfly Sryphini taeniata ? 
No been corrected it is
a female Sphaerophoria scripta.
Making steady progress in editing and naming most of the DSLR 350 Hoverflies can be hard though. There are very good drawings in the book by Stubbs & Falk but some flies are so similar to others it is hard to be certain. Even though the drawings are as much as 3-4 times lide size some flies are so little that is still small on the page.This one for example is only 8.5 millimeters in life Luckily Barbol on Flickr ID Please was able to help with the correct latin name.
