A Platypezid I think

I saw this fly today. It looks like a Platypezid and I wonder if a closer fix on its ID is possible.

Re: A Platypezid I think

Thanks. I am trying to photograph more Platypezids from our location this year but with wet weather, shade conditions etc., such other images as I have managed so far are probably not worth uploading. A tantalizing impression of more than one species perhaps.
