Can anyone help with this hoverfly ID please. Found on high Dartmoor on Hen near yesterday - looks like a Scaeva but markings are yellow not buff white

Can you see the wing stigma colour?

If yellow, how about Scaeva selenitica.

If black, possibly a Dasysyrphus such as D. venustus or even pinastri (a bit tricky to fully identify). But it is rather late for any Dasysyrphus.

This looks to be Scaeva selenitica Adrian. Details of the locality would be useful for the recording scheme - ideally an OS grid ref.
