can anyone help identify this fly??

HI guys im new here so bare with me.


Iv found a fly that i cannot find either on the net nor in a nature encyclopedia. Im uploading a photo soon but for now this is the description.

All iv been able to find out is that it is a true fly. Around the size of a large bluebottle.


It has a orange proboscis

Its wings are marked with a black stripe

And its body is banded black, and this is the strange feature, there is a single band that is translucent in the middle.


Iv never seen anything like it and i hope my obviously poor description may uncover some answers.
