Dear Kurt and all others interested in introduced species,

 From my little knowledge of the Australian Syrphids, Eristalinus aeneus 
is known there as an introduced species, most probably from Europe.
I have captured it in SA, and Thompson lists data from NSW and Vic.
Thompson & Vockeroth list the following species as introduced on Oceania 
(http://hbs.bishopmuseum.org/aocat/syrphidae.html ; several other 
species are mentionned as "introduced; not established")
Toxomerus marginatus : Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Allograpta exotica : Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Allograpta obliqua : Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Allograpta radiata : Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Copestylum apicale : Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Copestylum hoya: Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Copestylum tamaulipanum: Hawaiian Is [introduced]
Ornidia obesa : widepsread Oceania [introduced]
Palpada vinetorum : French Polynesia (Marquesas, Society Is) [introduced]
Eumerus obliquus : Australia (NSW, Qld, WA) [introduced]
Eumerus strigatus : Australia, NZ (NZ) [all introduced], N. Am. 
Eumerus tuberculatus :  Australia, NZ (NZ) [all introduced]; Colombia 
[introduced], Europe, N. Am. [introduced].
Merodon equestris : NZ (NZ) [introduced];  N. Am. [introduced]
Syritta flaviventris : Easter I [introduced]; Brazil, Chile, Mexico
