Melangyna viridiceps on Euryops sp.

A Common Hover Fly (Melangyna viridiceps), Family Syrphidae, Order Diptera, photographed on a yellow daisy, Euryops sp. (Asteraceae) at Roma Street Parklands, Brisbane, Australia. I've identified this hover fly as Melangyna viridiceps based on the apparent absence of any yellow markings on the thorax, but please let me know if you think otherwise.
