Is this some kind of fly, or wasp?

I photographed this near Madrid last summer and I'm having trouble identifying it.

I thought maybe a sawfly, but then I noticed the three white spots on the thorax. Last time I found white spots - I thought they were on an ant - it turned out to be a wasp, so male velvet ant is also on my list of possible suspects. Judging from the focal length I used, I estimate the length to be 1.5 - 2 cms.
