Georgia hoverflies

Photo'd a couple of hoverflies on the same tree saps run in Georgia last week and neither of them are on the Georgian Syrphidae Checklist run by  Ilia university, Tiblisi. So they are probably zooming off to the very tree as I type this, see below. Thanks to Gerard Pennards for identification help.

 Poplar Tree species complete with large sap run
 Brachyopa - update -not thought to be any of the british species - new for Georgia
 Sphiximorpha probably subsesslis - New for Georgia

Also had Eupeodes Corollae [below] and Episyrphus balteatus.
