Hi All

Noticed this hoverfly on some thistles on the edge of a small meadow, woods close by.

This one has got me stuck.
It has dark hind legs, dark hair on the scutellum and a completely pale frons.

I was looking at Epistrophe nitidicollis but that is out of area and the face isn't right. And then Parasyrphus nigritarsis.
But the face is not right for this either.

Could some please take a look and put me right?

Yours, Gareth

PS. These were taken only one month ago.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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