Sphaerophoria? Hoverfly for Id please

I took this photo in my garden, in Deal, East Kent, on 5th June.
The yellow stripes at the side of the thorax made me think Sphaerophoria, but I havenít seen any with the same sort of moustache stripes.
Thank you in advance,
Steve

Yes, it's Sphaerophoria, and a female, so you may not get an answer beyond genus.
