Looks like Helophilus

Definitely looks like pair of Helophilus. Male and female both have eyes seperated at top of head. Most other genera (including Myathropa) have eyes joining in males, as I understand.

Thank you all for the ID's. I had eliminated this one because of lack on yellow stripe on thorax. Did not know about the eye ID.
