Dear dipterists,
this syrphid fly was found on May 22, 2022 in Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, northern suburbs of Hamburg at the edge of a wet wood area. The fly was c. 13 - 15 mm in size.
Due to the missing yellow markings at the rear part of the thorax I would determine it as Temnostoma apiforme, a male specimen. Could anyone confirm oder rectify this?
Thank you very much in advance for having a look and an answer.

Best regards,
Sabine Flechtmann

Hello, I'm looking for literature on chironomid larvae that are able to survive after being entrapped in ice for at least several days . So far I've only found literature on Eretmoptera murphy
