Hi, this seemed to me quite brown-red, so I would be happy to know if it may nevertheless be Scaeva pyrastri... :-) Found on Cichorium intybus on 29-June-2019 in Germany near Frankfurt/Main, floodplain forest of the river Rhine, Hesse, Nature Reserve Kühkopf
Thanks and regards, Stella

yes, it is Scaeva pyrastri.

P.S.: There is a Syrphidae subforum.
Best regards,

Hello Jürgen,
thank you very much for your help!
And thanks for the info concerning the Syrphidae subforum! I somehow missed that one.
Those are only my first threads and I am thankful for such hints!
Viele Grüße

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
