Pic taken Yesterday South coast UK bug body length about 11mm
According to my British Insects book it's Eupeodes nitens but another hover expert thinks it's Xanthogramma pedissequum. Any views ?
(I'm not an expert BTW). If it's any help- it's territorial flight was different to hoverflies I've watched as it also bounced up down by about 3cms continuously.
Thanks Brian V.

The clear yellow stripes on the thorax are never present in Eupeodes, so yes, this is Xanthogramma.

Terrific picture. I was lucky to get a photograph of the same species which I was able to identify today. This picture is the confirmer.

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
