Hello,
in December I found this fly on Canary Islands, Fuerteventura.
Until 2009 for all islands the following species were identified in the LISTA DE ESPECIES SILVESTRES DE CANARIAS, Hongos, plantas y animales terrestres, 2009:
Eumerus canariensis Báez, 1982  NS F L
Eumerus dubius Báez, 1982  NS C
Eumerus latitarsis Macquart, 1839  NS H P G T C
Eumerus nivariae Báez, 1982  NS T
Eumerus obliquus (Fabricius, 1805) NP
Eumerus pulchellus Loew, 1848 NS T
Eumerus purpurariae Báez, 1982  NS F L
Eumerus purpureus Macquart, 1839  NS P G T C
Eumerus santosabreui Báez, 1982  NS H P G C
Eumerus terminalis Santos Abreu, 1924 NS P T C
Only two of them (the underlined ones) were found on Fuerteventura.
The species here does not show yellowish red spots on the abdomen like Eumerus purpurariae. Is it a Eumerus canariensis or are there some other alternatives?

What is the right name of tribe?
Merodontini or Eumerini?
Google search delivers 4 times more results for Merodontini. In Wikipedia Merodontini is presented as a synonym for Eumerini.

Thank you,
Marion

Sorry but the last paper about phylogeny of Syrphidae, published by Mengual in 2015, make a list of 16 tribes of Syrphidae and the name they used was "Eumerini". So, Eumerini should be the official name of the tribe Smile

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
