Wing base is yellow, so not C. solstitialis. According to van Veen's Hoverflies of Northwest Europe ( C. coemiteriorum (sometimes spelled cemiteriorum) and C. basalis are the candidates. According to the broad face I tend to coemiteriorum. Compare Falk's pictures https://www.flick...245694458/.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
