Wayne, I suspect you are correct.  Most of the information on them seems to come from England, and the color bands are different.  But, the general configuration seems the same.

I checked the Buddleia this morning, carrying my Fuji X-T2 and a Super-Multi-Coated

that pleased me, but, after examining 1000 online images, I have not identified the 
winged subject.  Perhaps someone will recognize it.


My keeper percentage using manual focus is disappointing.

Google image search, the closest to my eye is a hornet mimic hoverfly.
Nice capture though.
