This was found dead in our conservatory. It's about 15mm long. The hind wings are present but very small so it's not a diptera. Unfortunately one antenna is broken. Initially I thought it was a hover fly but the wing venation, presence of hind wings and antennae suggest not. It has no waist so not a wasp. I don't believe it's a bee. I'm mystified - but possibly about to be embarrassed when someone does identify it!!
