Hi, I found this on wet marshland near the Thames in south Oxfordshire, England. Is it Chrysotoxum cautum?

Thanks, Chris R.

Chrysotoxum cautum or C verralli ?

I do not have the keys to separate these two species just using a photograph.

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
