Hover-fly ID if some one can help

I found this Hover-fly on a Dandelion at Brockholes Nature Reserve in Lancashire.

I got an on top shot but didn't get it's face.

However because of the wing veins , dark wing cloud and dark scutellum, I am guessing it is Cheilosia illustrata.

But all the pictures I see have their wings closed over their abdomen ? not open like this one ?
