I think I'm right in saying that the combination of a 2-coloured black and white abdomen with large black patches on the wings is diagnostic of this species. I expect Martin Harvey will confirm if I'm right.
Yes, I'd agree this is a distinctive species. Volucella inflata is a similar size and shape but has an orange band across the abdomen instead of white.
The other one that's similar is Leucozona lucorum, which has a similar white band across the abdomen amd also a similar black marking on the wing, but is a bit smaller, has differing wing venation, doesn't have the yellow shading at the base of the wing, and does have some yellow on the legs.
