Mrs Mehrabi,
      I do not like doing IDs from images for species other than the most common and widespread ones.  The right image is probably of a small specimen of crenulatus as you have determined it.  Please check my paper with Chris Thompson (USA) on Oriental Paragus published in 1992 in my journal Colemania.  If you send me your postal address I could send a reprint (hardcopy oif current terminology !) to you late January.  I am out on a month-loing expedition right now and will be back to my lab only 23rd January.  Until then, kind regards and best wishes for a great 2007 to all syrphidologist colleagues.
