It's definitely a Criorhina . Based on the gestalt and enlarged leg it is either Criorhina asilica or Criorhina pachymera. I believe it is the latter.

hi everyone 

Boudjema Samraoui in Algeria is putting together some checklists of the syrphids there, and has a photo (attached) of a difficult damaged specimen that he has tentatively identified as a Criorhina. Has anyone anything to say about this?
