Dear Forum,

Angela has made Jun 09 this photo near Munich, showing a syrphid larva of 4-5 mm size.
? by Angela Schwarz,

It was found in a colony of greenflies.

Can anyone tell me, what this larva is?

I thank you in advance, Martin...

It looks like a larva of Platycheirus, but I'm not sure about this...
