Greetings, I think this is Dasysyrphus tricinctus male. Though the antennas are quite unclear in your picture, they seem to be too short for Chrystoxum. Additionally, I have seen this abdomen pattern with two yellow spots on the tergite 2 in D. tricintus at least once . I think, in the northern countries it is mor common.

Best regards,

Not a Chyrsotoxum. Antennae should be longer! I agree with Matej. Smile

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
