Hi all !

I pictured this specimen in my garden on 2023-05-27. I measured it on pictures = 11,3mm

I think it could be some Meligramma ...

Can we ID this specimen ?

Meligramma triangulifera seems to have yellow stripes on the thorax that are diagnose and I can't see them here ...

Could be Meligramma euchroma according to syrphidae keys ?

Thank you for reading,

Thank you for reading and/or Commenting this post,
Have a nice day,

No, this is Epistrophella euchroma (f), characterized by the small yellow spots in the anterior corners of the tergites.

Thank you very much.
It's the same species and I know now that there are many latin names for this species : Epistrophella euchroma in Faunaea Europae, Bold Systems,, .be and .org, Meligramma euchroma in StN keys for Syrphidae and France and even Epistrophe euchromus on Gbif, all with synonymy ...
I hope one day we'll have only one scientific name !!!

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