Hi,

a few days ago. I took a few pictures of a medium-sized hoverfly on a leaf. It seems a bit large for Cheilosia sp., but its my best guess anyway. Can that be confirmed/excluded from the attached images?

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Garden in Munich (-West), 06.09.2023, app. 8-10 mm

Greetings, Uli

Hi Uli,

Definitely a member of the Cheilosia genus. With this much yellow on the legs and a fairly big size, my first guess would be Ch. flavipes, although I dont have any experience with this species. You could take a look and see if it matches.

Best,
Jonne

Hi Jonne,

thank you very much for the confirmation. I agree that Ch. flavipes would be a good match, but I am not sure, if it can be distinguished from other species like Ch. fraterna, so Cheilosia sp. is good enough for me.

Greetings, Uli

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
