Hi there,

is this Rhingia rostrata or R. campestris? I read, that Rhingia rostrata has a shorter "bill"

Seen in Germany, Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Waldshut, in a garden (02.05.17)

Thanks a lot,

It's campestris. Rostrata lacks the lateral black stripes and long median stripes on the abdomen.

It would be helpful if you change the subject title in this thread, Chris, in accordance with the ID.
