I photographed this insect on ivy today. Unfortunately, I don't have another view. What species is it? The pale legs, the black spot on the thigh of the hind legs, the yellow scutellum and the yellow spot between the eyes are conspicuous.

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