A small dark hoverfly with brightly spotted eyes
No interactions present.
Yes, the eye margins are parallel on top of the head, whereas they are divergent on females. This may be a species having a good year (weather related?), as I keep seeing them in places I have not seen them before at all.

I guess we could do with a female for iSpot, I've only found a few individual males, though I was very struck with the brightness of the thoracic stripes on this one
