Thread subject: :: Syrphidae: Cheilosia caerulescens ♂

Posted by ESant on 13-11-2021 13:34


I photographed this fly near Monte Ocre (AQ), Italy, on October 4th 2021. I think it is a Syrphidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species just from this photo?

Thank you in advance,

With bare eyes, wing bands and light-coloured knees, it must belong to Cheilosia caerulescens (m),
