Can someone please ID this?
Thanks in advance!

I am not an expert, but this should be Parhelophilus versicolor (abdomen largely orange) and P. frutetorum (abdomen with yellow strips only).

Females of two species of Merodon. Difficult or impossible to come further.

I would also think Merodon fits them quite well. The second might be in the natans-group i would guess
Anyways thanks to both of you Jan and Fred 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
