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 !!!

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
