Hi Sander,  

I have a female specimen which I suppose it is _volaticum_, from
Portugal, collected in Portugal. However, since it does not appear in
any existing key after Séguys description, and because I have not seen
specimens to compare it with, I am keeping this ID as 'preliminary'.
Apparently it is not known from Europe yet, and therefor lacks in
European keys. Even Violovitch does not include it in his review of
Palaearctic _Chrysotoxum_.  

So I am curious just as you for any clarification on its current status!
Perhaps António Ricarte can help us out? 

cheers, André
