Hoverfly or Fruitfly ?

Hi .. i'm from Borneo.

Caught this one on a flower plant ... it's hover like a bee.

It is a Hoverfly right ?

    Whatever it is, it is not (and I'm sure) a hoverfly. Fruitfly? Well, not my table - I am among the horseflies over here... we're all bloodsuckers and evil!

    Probably a pipunculid. See this page (on which it says they do hover) -
