For Syrphids, better use the Syrphid subforum.

In any case : Ferdinandea cuprea.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.
