Description:

Looks like a hoverfly, but if so I can't get the species. Lots of light brown, almost golden fur. This specimen has a deformed wing.

Eristalis

You can rule out Eristalis quickly because the wing lacks the looped vein characteristic of that genus. Many Cheilosia are very difficult to take to species from a photo.
