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.

South downs, north Shoreham, Sussex

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

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.
