Is this Chrysotoxum arcuatum. It was quite small compared to other Hoverflies in the area

Very tricky to say with certainty based on the photo alone. Where and when was it seen? These sorts of data do help in making an ID.

Seen on the 21st in Redditch Worcestershire. Near to a pool. I have seen at least one of the other members of the family and it was a lot smaller. Thanks for your reply.

Tricky - at the overlap point between C. arcuatum and C. verralli - on balance probably arcuatum but I would not commit
