Hello Michael,

I don't think this is Baccha elongata exactly and I rather think this is not a Syrphid (hoverfly) at all, but another type of fly altogether, perhaps a member of the Conopsidea (thick-headed flies), maybe a species of Conops itself???

Best wishes,

David

Agree that this is not Baccha elongata. Can't offer much more, unfortunately.

In the photo 2 and 3 it's a Conopidae, probably Physocephala, the first photo is another specimen, could be Ceriana sp.
