Can someone help with ID, please?

I saw this fly on my lavender on 19th August. 

It's about 6 - 8mm long, with black legs, creamy-brown abdomen, and a 'smokey' suffusion to the outer wing, which also has a bulge - which makes me think it may be Phaonia genus.   

Any help gratefully received - thanks.
